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. This article engages with the implications of this affective and masculinist 'post-truth' era for higher education and analyses the narratives…

Sellar, Sam; Cole, David R. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2017
Accelerationism is a theoretical movement that seeks to mobilise reason and technological development as a strategy for moving beyond capitalism.

Buddeberg, Magdalena; Hornberg, Sabine – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2017

After the re-establishment of independent Estonian statehood in 1991, Russian lost its privileges as the dominant and official language in Estonia, and Estonian continued as the only official language.

Sondergaard, Dorte Marie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2012
In this article, I develop a new conceptual framework, a new thinking technology, for understanding the bullying that takes place between children in schools.

Green, Elizabeth – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2012
This paper asserts that the religious assumptions of Christian academies need to be fully examined in relation to any analysis of their cultural practices, impact or policy implications.

Clegg, Sue – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2011
This paper explores some of the unresolved tensions in higher education systems and the contradiction between widening participation and the consolidation of social position.

van de Werfhorst, Herman G. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2010
In this paper I discuss two weaknesses in Bourdieu's work on cultural capital, both of which are related to his integration of the multidimensional nature of social space in different domains of life: social mobility, lifestyle differentiation, and political orientation. First, there is an anomaly between the work on social mobility and on…

Morrison, Keith – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2005
This paper examines similarities and differences between structuration theory, habitus and complexity theory, as theories of social change. The paper suggests that structuration theory and habitus can theorize change, but that complexity theory offers a more complete theory of change because it focuses on social production rather than…

Kenway, Jane; McLeod, Julie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper considers Bourdieu's concepts of perspectivism and reflexivity, looking particularly at how he develops arguments about these in his recent work, The Weight of the World (1999) and Pascalian Meditations (2000b). We explicate Bourdieu's distinctive purposes and deployment of these terms and approaches, and discuss how this compares with…

This paper seeks to outline and evaluate Pierre Bourdieu's work as it has appeared most recently in feminist studies and the field of gender and education.
