In this seminar, Dominique will present a part of her PhD research on conceptualising disadvantage as social exclusion. She uses a European conceptualisation of the concept to develop measures of disadvantage and then tests the association between disadvantage and socio-demographic characteristics, mainly via intersectionality, on data available from the United States. Dominique's work is fascinating not only because of this novel application of concepts, but also for the large-scale quantitative datasets she used to test the association betwen disadvantage and socio-demographics.

This seminar will take place on May 8th, from 13.00-14.15 in the Practice Suite (1.12) on the first floor of the Chrystal Macmillan Building.
