Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting 2013

I have presented a paper on 


Sub-classifications of the working class and capitalists are possible in respect to personal and group values, attitudes, and cultures. New classifications are partly built according to how people react to environmental issues and to other contemporary political challenges. In current local and grassroots politics, when dealing with environmental issues, these new classifications of social groups explain some unusual and surprising alliances with significant political consequences. The question is: is it possible and worth building a theoretical frame which includes a reshuffle of traditional class alliances? Is it likely that new social classes will form according to environmental values and interests? In my presentation, I will (a) propose a critical analysis of some analytical approaches; and (b) report on some European case studies and compare them with the U.S. situation “
