Abstract

Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.
 
Description · We built an internationally renowned team of academic researchers who worked on financialization, financial crisis and the foundational economy. They produced highly original, culturally informed and politically engaged analyses of how present day capitalism in high income countries produces inequalities that benefit elites and creates disastrous instability for the majority. Directly engaging current concerns such as shareholder value, the financial crisis, the horse meat scandal and train procurement, the work reached non-academic audiences and engaged non-academic partners in the public and the private sector.
· Our work on media and communications analysed the challenges posed to multi-ethnic publics, media producers and security policymakers by the post-9/11 environment. Working closely with national institutions (the BBC World Service, the British Army and the British Council), we have forged new, culturally sensitive, ethnographic and historical approaches to researching international and diasporic audiences, publics and politics.
· We developed a distinctive theoretical approach to the analysis of how culture forms an integral part of modern programmes of liberal government, including its research methods. This has contributed to a re-conceptualisation of the relations between cultural and religious diversity and multicultural policies and practices. We have placed these contemporary developments in a long-term historical perspective by examining transformations in the relations between culture, government since the 18th century, exploring how these relations have shaped contemporary urban space.
· Building on ethnographic research in Latin America, Central Asia and in various European countries, we conducted innovative comparative research on the modern state, developing new ways of addressing the methodological challenges posed by the multi-scalar, trans-local entities that increasingly inflect state practice (e.g. transnational companies, supra-state organisations such as the European Union, multilateral lenders, international NGOs, etc.) By focusing our ethnographic studies on sites of public works, infrastructural development projects (roads, sanitation, waste management) and information systems, we revealed the interplay of cultural values embedded in diverse knowledge practices. Our studies show how transformational projects work through an often controversial combination of normative and imaginative thinking.
· We have undertaken the most comprehensive quantitative and qualitative research on social and cultural participation in the UK. This work confirmed that while social class divisions remain significant in affecting cultural and social participation, age, gender and ethnicity are also strongly implicated. Using detailed historical studies of the UK since 1945, as well as a series of contemporary investigations, that instrumental as opposed to intrinsic? involvement does not generate the kind of investment that creates longer-term engagement and encourages people to identify themselves as activists.
· We established an international reputation for our work on the social life of method. Working across all CRESC's core research themes we showed that social research methods are not simply techniques or culturally or politically neutral tools, but play a double social role: on the one hand they are shaped by the social; and then they in turn help to shape the social. We demonstrate these processes in specific empirical contexts.
Exploitation Route Our findings have had a diffuse impact across many intellectual fields most notable in the sociological study of stratification. Here, Mike Savage's recent pelican book, co-written with CRSEC authors, has led the way in shifting academics away from simple three-class models of society read off the occupational hierarchy.
The other conspicuous success has been the work on financialisation. The 2011 book, After the Great Complacence, was a critical success but did not immediately influence policy. But other sectorial studies, like the 2013 study on rail for the TUC, have influenced the policy debate.

Description 1. Our recent work on the foundational economy and the grounded city has provoked considerable media interest and has had a direct impact on public understandings of non- standard economic policies. 2. The socializing big data project exemplified new and experimental forms of collaboration that engaged diverse practitioner groups, and facilitated discussion across sectors who would not otherwise have known anything of each other's work. 3. Our in-depth and long term relationship with the BBC World Service allowed us to engage an institution undergoing institutional change. This work produced our fifth nominated academic output, Diasporas and Diplomacy, and also directly influenced areas of government and BBC strategy. 4. The results of the Great British Class Survey were presented as a high profile media event highlighting the impact of innovative research methods and the potential to provoke debate through the creation of a controversial and engaging pedagogic tool. This experimental project linked up areas of CRESC expertise on elites, on class and on stratification in a way that engaged very large audiences.

Description Fatally confused about time : climate change and non-performativity 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Primary Audience
Results and Impact Bill McKibben has recently argued that one of the reasons why humans have failed to adequately respond to climate change has been because we are 'fatally confused about time'. That is, in continuing to tell the time as if it were moving steadily into the infinite future, we are implicitly assuming that nature will continue to provide a relatively stable and predictable background. In order to explore this fatal confusion, this working paper will pick up on the question of the performative, as it has been discussed by Jacques Derrida, in order to develop at understanding of 'telling the time' as a performative speech act. In order to understand the specificities of this speech act in the context of climate change, I will also draw on Sara Ahmed's account of the non-performativity of anti-racism statements in order to explore the ways in which statements about time may actually be articulated precisely in order to avoid the need to act in a timely fashion. I will then make a number of exploratory suggestions for how time might be performed differently.

Feminist Webs emerges out of a youth work context and survives, and thrives, in the overlapping sites of - and spaces between - youth work, academia, activism and community settings. Feminist Webs is an intriguing success in a time of supposed generational conflicts. The youth work context then is not accidental; feminist youth work has always - by definition - been intergenerational, confounding assumptions about strife between young women and older feminists.

Description Healing the nation : utopianism, culture, and Aboriginal reconciliation 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar

Primary Audience
Results and Impact This paper draws on research undertaken within the Australian 'holistic milieu' - an amalgam of alternative spiritualities, alternative lifestyle groupings, and the shops, workshops, festivals, websites and magazines in which they thrive - in the early to mid 2000s. At this time there was considerable interest, both within and without the milieu, in the redemptive possibilities afforded by the Aboriginal Reconciliation movement. This interest tended towards a kind of aspirational nostalgia in which it was imagined that the persistent sense of the uncanny - the feeling of not being at home when at home - brought about by a shallow national history and the sins of colonial settlement could be healed by absorption of Aboriginal 'traditional culture'. The hope was that a spiritual and cultural reconciliation (and, in some cases, a political one) could give rise to a more legitimate Australian identity. Ultimately the Aboriginal cure was imagined as a kind of national Gestalt therapy allowing Australians to become at one with their surroundings.

Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar

Primary Audience
Results and Impact This article evaluates the often under analyzed relationship between transformations in US liberal

welfare capitalism and the growth in household indebtedness. Using the example of young adults

it consider how, alongside profound transformation in financial markets, important changes in the

US liberal welfare capitalism contributed to households demand forever-larger amounts of debt.

Here, we focus on three key developments: (1) transformations in the labour market regime; (2)

the promotion of asset-based welfare, and; (3) the use of debt as a safety-net. Young adults were

affected by these trends in a multiplicity of ways but a common thread runs through the highly

variegated experiences: rapidly rising indebtedness.

Essentially debt became a panacea during this period; it was used to fund investment,

consumption and as a safety-net. This suggests that transformations in the form and content of

welfare capitalism are relevant factors when assessing the causes of rising household

indebtedness. The credit-asset bubble may have occurred 'outside' the logic and processes of

welfare reform but, nonetheless, were linked through the everyday practices of households which

used debt to cope with changing welfare provision and instability in labour markets.

Description Missing details : dealing with the death of undocumented migrants in the Aegean 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Primary Audience
Results and Impact Rising levels of migration into European Union territories by people without the appropriate paperwork has attracted high levels of attention in recent years. In passing, media reports occasionally mention that some people do not make it, and as the level of attempted migration into the EU rises, so do the number of people who die in the attempt. Some reports have expressed concern about this, on two counts: first, about the way that security policies funnel migrants into ever more dangerous routes; and second, about the apparently dismissive way in which the bodies of the deceased are handled by the receiving authorities. Based on some ethnographic fieldwork in the Aegean, the seminar will argue that this literally tragic situation also implies an important wider shift in social and moral concepts of the person in many parts of the Euro-American world, one that makes personhood increasingly dependent upon having the right paperwork. Anthropologists have long understood that the treatment of the dead reveals a great deal about cultural and social attitudes towards persons - what it takes to be a person, and what that means. The treatment of the bodies of undocumented migrants suggests that the deceased have lost most of their personhood precisely as a result of having crossed a border with no documents. The absence of any paperwork that locates and identifies these bodies seems to strip them of some fundamental aspect of what it takes to be a person in contemporary Euro-American contexts. The seminar will explore the apparently shifting relationship between bodies, personhood and the official paperwork that identifies people for the purpose of crossing borders. It will suggest that one of the little-noticed effects of increasing levels of border surveillance is that recognition of personhood is increasingly dependent upon not evading that surveillance.

Description Money frontiers : the relative location of Euros, Turkish Lira and gold sovereigns in the Aegean 
Form Of Engagement Activity A talk or presentation
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Primary Audience
Results and Impact The current Eurozone crisis forms a backdrop for this lecture, which considers the historically changing relationship between borders and currencies from a social perspective. Based on ethnographic research in the Aegean region, it describes people's shifting understanding of the relative value of different types of currency: the euro, the Turkish Lira and gold sovereigns - which are still sometimes used for transactions on both the Greek and Turkish sides of the Aegean; more importantly, gold sovereigns continue to have high social significance in the region.



The lecture explores how people's understanding of the relative value of these currencies is connected with both historical and contemporary relations between places and peoples. It will argue that these three currencies represent different understandings of relations within, between and across frontiers: historically transnational (gold sovereigns); state-based (Turkish Lira); and the rather ambiguous and now ambivalent new form of cross-border relation implied by the euro. By comparing different social perspectives of the relation between location and these three forms of currency in the Aegean region, the lecture makes a contribution towards understanding how currencies both shape and are shaped by the border dynamics of any given region, both as material objects (cash) that people handle in their everyday lives; and as symbols and traces of the wider political, social and historical contexts in which people exist. The lecture provides a somewhat different vantage point from which to think about what is currently happening in the Eurozone; and it also explores the implications of the obvious point that the value of all currencies, both in quantitative and qualitative terms, are always at least partially dependent upon their cross-border value. In that sense, all currencies have relative locations.

Description Rising and falling : mechanics of cost recovery, management discretion and the social settlement 
Form Of Engagement Activity Participation in an activity, workshop or similar
Part Of Official Scheme? No
Primary Audience
Results and Impact The terms market and state are often opposed without recognising that each denotes different possibilities for established producers in high income countries and for new entrants low wage industrialising countries. One key mechanical difference is better cost recovery from a low labour share of value added for low wage entrants who can sell in high income markets. We present some basic statistics which establish this contrast and draw out the implications. On global product markets, we have an unequal struggle because firm management in new entrants has greater discretion about objectives and tactics; while established producers are always constrained by short term (un) profitability and, after financialization, increasingly harassed for target returns. In addition, new entrant firms can cover social overhead costs like training or welfare while the state can afford to do more if it can tap the surplus from growth with a low labour share. Compare the dilemma of high income countries where the state is lumbered with increasingly unaffordable social settlements which in the UK combines benefits for the unwaged, low waged and publicly funded employment job creation. The mechanics of cost recovery are such that in many high income countries the reach of corporate management and policy elites exceeds their grasp.

Results and Impact CRESC's Karel Williams was interviewed today on BBC Radio Five's Wake up to Money programme. 'Ellesmere is a very neat assembly plant. The problem is the larger one. Behind the assembly plant is the supply chain, and the UK has unsolved problems about a broken supply chain. The import content of UK automotive output is 50% higher than in France or Italy. And as a result, when we export cars we import components.'

Results and Impact Professor Law is a leading figure in the development of actor-network theory and its associated social scientific method for mapping relations that are simultaneously material and semiotic. His writings include After Method: Mess in Social Science Research (2004) and Organizing Modernity (2002) co-editor of Actor-Network Theory and After (1999). Professor Law's lecture employs actor-network theory and science and technology studies approaches to explore how it is that the notion of a "single world" is created and enacted in the 'North,' and in the context of the North's interactions with the 'South.' Such explorations are both analytic and political issues, and have much to do with how knowledges are formed and the work they do.
