The Politics of Representation is a special section edited by Lakshmi Bose and Rebecca Gordon on The Sociological Review’s website. It is part of an exciting new stream of activity launched by doctoral researchers within the faculty, as part of a new collective which can be found online here. This is how the editors describe their project in their introduction:

Inspired by a conference we hosted at the University of Cambridge entitled ‘The Ethical Debates of Representation in Research’ we found a stark need and desire amongst researchers to openly discuss these particular issues with sensitivity, reflexivity and democratic engagement in order to better address and conceptualise the meaning and ramifications of representation. At the core of this conversation is an intent to ensure that our scholarship is cognisant of the politics of representation, which in turn requires the further development of inclusive and open spaces for deeper and more nuanced analysis.
