About this event

An exhibition bringing together research from across the social sciences on socio-economic inequalities in London and the UK, our changing environment, language and health across the world.

An exhibition running as part of the 2023 LSE Festival, exploring how maps (that is graphic representations that facilitate a spatial understanding of things, concepts, conditions, processes or events in the human world) help us to understand the impacts of a rapidly changing world on people and communities.

Andrew Eyles and Lee Elliot Major have contributed their research to a map titled social mobility in England. Asking if it has become easier to be the first in your family to get a degree.

In 2022, around 368,000 people in England obtained a first degree according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency. To better understand changes in social mobility, researchers have looked at the chances of becoming the first in your family to get a university degree. This map will show that probability has changed over time, in different regions of England, by tracking the progress of people born in 1958, in 1970 and in 1989. Does where you grow up make a difference to your life chances?

More information about the exhibition, and the other projects on display, is available at LSE Events.
