This is the website for the seminar series ‘Welfare Imaginaries: constructing rhetoric, realities and resistance over time’ .  

The series is kindly sponsored by the Sociological Review Foundation and is organised by Tracey Jensen (Lancaster University), Kayleigh Garthwaite (University of Birmingham), Ruth Patrick (Liverpool University), Sara De Benedictis (Brunel University) and Kim Allen (University of Leeds).

We’ll be updating this site with more information soon but in the meantime you can read more about the series here 

We will be using the hashtag #welfareimaginaries on twitter – so please follow this for news and booking information, and for live-tweeting from the seminars.
