In their lecture, the eminent sociologists Luc Boltanski (author of the The New Spirit of Capitalism and On Justification, Economies of Worth) and Arnaud Esquerre (author of La manipulation mentale: Sociologie des sectes en France) will present their forthcoming book, which explores what they see as a new ‘enrichment’ form of capitalism, and its close associations with the luxury sector, heritage and collectible objects.

They will also be leading a seminar on the issues raised in their lecture in the TORCH seminar room, top floor, Radcliffe Humanities Building, Woodstock Road, on Friday 18 November at 10 am.
