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.

Courtois, Aline – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article suggests that a process of de-academisation is discernible in the way the Erasmus year abroad is promoted, organised, supervised and evaluated.
