Introduction. Des classes sociales 2.0 ?

Abstract : The papers gathered in this first issue of RESET aim at reassessing the actuality of the concept of "social class", in an era of computer-mediated communication. The discourse on "the death of social class" seems to have been fueled by the development of information and communication technologies. It has been strongly advocated in the media as well as among some sociological researches. However, this claim often ignores the various levels of analysis where the concept works, from digital inequalities to lifestyles. This introduction presents salient features of the concept of social class, such as the separation between objective and subjective class, the stress on living standards, and the methodological implications of social class to show that it still relevant in contemporary perspectives on social stratification.
