Loïc Wacquant spoke at the recent BJS Public Lecture on Tuesday 6th October at the LSE. Loïc Wacquant draws on classical theory, social history, and a comparative analysis of the penalization of urban poverty in advanced societies at the century’s turn to argue that we need to bring the penal state back to the centre of the sociology of social inequality, public policy and citizenship.
