Samson, Maxim G. M. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Faith schools may play an important role in reproducing ethnoreligious identities, yet research into Jewish schools has tended to overlook students' personalised conceptualisations of faith.

Inzunza, Jorge; Assael, Jenny; Cornejo, Rodrigo; Redondo, Jesus – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019

Gray, Emily M.; Nicholas, Lucy – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
In 2016 the world witnessed a consolidation of a western brand of political 'populist authoritarianism' that is anti-globalisationalist and creates 'shared objects of loathing' in the popular imagination.

Shahjahan, Riyad A.; Morgan, Clara – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2016
While scholars have analyzed global higher education (HE) competition, they have largely failed to address how global spaces of equivalence are tied both to coloniality and to competition.
