This chapter explores the influence of class dynamics in Ivor Goodson's identity and work. The chapter takes and autoethnographic approach, using part of a conversation recorded while walking with Ivor in the summer of 2018, alongside examples from his published work. The author considers how perspectives of social class drive and shape Goodson's theory and practice and raises general questions about maintaining a working class identity whilst being and academic and a public intellectual.
