ASA 112th Annual Meeting 2017 - 12 Aug 2017 Rising inequality has brought the unequal distribution of material resources to the center of political debates in the US and Europe. Social scientists routinely mobilise their deep knowledge of the structures of economic inequality to inform decision-making and conversations in the public sphere. Yet our understanding of the cultural dimensions of inequality lags far behind, despite the omnipresence and the urgency of cultural polarisations as manifested in anti-immigration rhetoric, international refugee crises, domestic racial confrontation, and increased class segregation. The 112thAnnual Meeting of the American Sociological Association will make its central goal the improvement of our understanding of the nexus of culture, inequalities, and group boundaries in order to promote greater social inclusion and resilience, collective well-being, and solidarity in the US and globally.
