Watkins, Megan – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
In Bourdieu's early work on education, he declares that "All pedagogic action (PA) is objectively symbolic violence insofar as it is the imposition of a cultural arbitrary by an arbitrary power". This article rethinks Bourdieu's proposition. It questions whether all PA is symbolic violence and the very notion of a cultural arbitrary upon…

Chatelier, Stephen; Rudolph, Sophie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
The professionalisation of teaching in Australia is a policy shift that transpires within broader policy dynamics which are increasingly influenced by neoliberal logics. In this article we examine teacher responsibility through analysis of a new measure introduced in Victoria. This requires teachers to prove professional development hours in the…

Buddel, Neil Anthony – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
The notion that the stories of our lives shape dispositions towards imagined futures is another lens through which university underrepresentation should be viewed. A storied lens attends to how futures, like university attendance, are storied during childhood to the extent that some youth imagine, and therefore plan, these futures as natural…

Glackin, Melissa – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018

Vainker, Stephen; Bailey, Adrian R. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
The transfer of human resource management (HRM) practices from the corporate business context into schools has taken a novel turn.

HRM views the student as a human resource to serve the school, and seeks to systematically…

Hewson, Dominic – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
It is 30 years since Vietnam implemented the 'Doi Moi' economic reforms. The subsequent influx of capital was accompanied by a general infiltration of foreign influences, arguably none more important than the English language.
