Julien Talpin co-authored The Ordeal of Discrimination: A Survey of Working-class Neighborhoods (L’épreuve de la discrimination : Enquête dans les quartiers populaires) with Hélène Balazard, Marion Carrel, Samir Hadj Belgacem, Sümbül Kaya, Anaïk Purenne and Guillaume Roux. In France, millions of people suffer microagressions and stigmatization daily. They see their opportunities for social advancement hindered, their life expectancy decreased. Based on an unprecedented survey in several working-class neighborhoods in France, the United Kingdom and North America, this study analyzes the consequences of the denial of discrimination: depression, exile, a withdrawal into oneself. In the face of this silent drama that occurs before us, the book stands as an invitation to collective awareness.
