We live in a divided world where everyone thinks their perception of the world is the right one.
Harvard sociologist Michèle Lamont argues that to be able to live together again, we need to be able to acknowledge others and their difference. Accepting that others have different experiences that shape their own understanding of the world is the way forward to building a more inclusive and tolerant society.
Michèle Lamont is Professor of Sociology and of African and African American Studies and the Robert I. Goldman Professor of European Studies at Harvard University. An influential cultural sociologist who studies boundaries and inequality, she has tackled topics such as dignity, respect, stigma, racism, class and racial boundaries, and how we evaluate social worth across societies. Michèle is a leader in the study of culture and inequality in the United States and beyond, helping to redefine the field of sociology as we know it today.
