Mathew, Leya – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2018
This paper analyzes narratives about the radical socio-economic changes accompanying liberalization in India to consider how English-medium schooling is becoming an aspirational resource for non-elite parents. I suggest that aspiring is a practice of ethics that marginalized mothers mobilize to negotiate memories of deprivation and yearnings for…

This article draws from an ethnographic case study that examined the diverse and contradictory roles of one Korean language school in a predominantly White mid-sized Midwestern city.
