Internationalising Practices and Representations of the "'Other" in Second-Level Elite Schools in Ireland
Courtois, Aline
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v14 n4 p560-576 2016
While Irish elite schools have adopted some internationalising practices, international students are often erased from their "public faces". Based on interviews and analysis of schools' websites, this paper argues that Brooks and Waters' [2014. "The Hidden Internationalism of Elite English Schools." "Sociology," advance online publication April 2] argument that elite schools hide their internationalism to preserve an explicit national identity for strategic purposes largely applies to the Irish case. In addition, it explores how features characteristic of Irish elite educational settings can help understand ambiguous attitudes to the international "other", who is not only hidden but also at times "Irish-ised" as these schools cultivate cultural identities defined primarily along ethno-national lines.
