Abstract

As a foreign student, I have learned that British society is a classist society. I didn’t perceived it like that before, but from my interest in social classes, I began investigating academic theories of class stratification, which has me now studying the MSc in Inequalities and Social Sciences here at LSE. As a Mexican, I have always noticed that our classist society foments inequalities, and I wanted to “get to know the causes of things” in order to change it. I now have more knowledge on theories of discrimination, social stratification, and classes, and the way British academia is finding answer to the “social class in the 21st century”. And with five months living in London, I understand now more the how British society is a very classist one.
