During the seminar, we will be visited by Dr. Grant Banfield from the Centre for Research in Educational and Social Inclusion at the University of South Australia. Grant will introduce us to his 2016 book Critical Realism for a Marxist Sociology of Education, and together we will discuss the relation between Critical Realism and Marxism and more generally what a Critical Realist approach brings to critical social research. The seminar is open to anyone that is interested in these themes. To prepare, you can look at Grant's book in advance, and also (where relevant to you) check out the following articles:
