The Enduring Problem of Social Class Stigma Experienced by Upwardly Mobile White Academics. By: Jennifer Lynn Heller McGill Sociological Review, Volume 2, April 2011, pp. 19-38 Abstract This paper focuses on the paradox of upwardly mobile white academics in the United States who report difficulties in assimilating into their new class environment, despite a shared dominant racial status that would presumably facilitate their ability to “pass” or blend in.

The Enduring Problem of Social Class Stigma Experienced by Upwardly Mobile White Academics

In this paper I draw on a number of autobiographical essays that describe the thoughts and experiences of a non-random group of upwardly mobile American white academics in order to gain insight into this process. In order for stigma to be applied to individuals from subordinate social locations or those with personal “imperfections” (e.g. physical or mental disabilities), members of the normative group must first recognize that a difference exists, mentally place the abnormative person into a devalued social group, and then treat them accordingly (Goffman 1963).

class consciousness

This modern sociological concept has its origins in, and is closely associated with, Marxist theory. Although Karl Marx himself did not articulate a theory of class consciousness, he intimated the concept in his characterization of the working class. According to Marx, workers first become conscious of sharing common grievances against capitalists (thus forming a class “in itself”) and eventually develop an awareness of themselves as forming a social class opposed to the bourgeoisie (thus becoming a class “for itself”), the proletariat.

Groupe d'individus ayant une place historiquement déterminée au sein de la société et se distinguant par son mode de vie (habitat, éducation, travail, etc.), son idéologie et, pour les marxistes, par sa place dans le processus de production, à la fois réelle et vécue comme telle par ceux qui la composent (conscience de classe).

Si toutes les sociétés connues ont été caractérisées par leurs modes de différenciation sociale, notamment en fonction de l'âge, du sexe et des relations de parenté, les classes sociales sont une réalité relativement récente. En Europe, elles apparaissent de façon embryonnaire à la fin du Moyen Âge, mais datent surtout des débuts de la société capitaliste. La stratification en castes, comme en Inde, ou en états, comme dans l'Europe féodale, est l'expression d'un niveau relativement développé de division sociale du travail qui se reproduit selon des règles apparemment immuables.
