Rune Stubager

Professor, Department of Political Science, Aarhus University

During his Carlsberg Monograph Fellowship, Rune Stubager will be working on the project 'Are Classes Dead? Perceptions of Social Class and their Politcal Implications'

Project description

It is often claimed that social class has ceased to have importance for citizens in advanced, western countries – in particular for their political behaviour. The project investigates this claim and finds that classes are alive and well in citizens’ minds and that particularly perceptions about social classes also influence political behaviour, including party choice.

Project title: Are Classes Dead? Perceptions of Social Class and their Political Implications

Area of research: History of Ideas 

Fellowship period: 1 Mar 2024 - 28 Feb 2025
