Marxist sociologist my main intellectual project has been and continues to be developing theoretical tools to understand the connection between what Henri Lefebvre refers to as the ‘everyday’ of the working-class life and social struggle. Put in question form: what are the features of ‘everyday’ working-class life? And how do they shape opportunities for emancipatory struggle?
My view has been over the last four years that along with the fragmentation of the Left, and the lack of adequate transformative political strategy, there is a lack of critical analysis of the ‘everyday’ of working-class life. And furthermore, there is a lack of incorporation of such knowledge into the realm of political strategy
