International Students with Dependent Children: The Reproduction of Gender Norms
Brooks, Rachel
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v36 n2 p195-214 2015
Extant research on family migration for education has focused almost exclusively on the education of children. We thus know very little about family migration when it is driven by the educational projects of parents. To begin to redress this gap, this paper explores the experiences of families who have moved to the United Kingdom primarily to enable the mother or father to pursue a degree. It argues that, in common with what we know of UK student-parents, both choices about and experiences of higher education are strongly differentiated by gender.
