This ethnographic study explores the complex influence of family members on the educational aspirations of a group of diverse immigrants and refugees in New York State.

Lavi, Noa – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
Children's school performance is often associated with parenting practices, implying a direct link between parents' behavior, child development, and academic success. Through the case of an Indian forest-dwelling community, I offer an alternative view of child development, learning, and teaching, which prioritizes social skills above--and as a…

Brownell, Cassie J.; Parks, Amy Noelle – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
Historically, research about classroom management has been instrumental in nature. Although some studies have engaged a critical perspective, few have studied management from the perspectives of children.

Gallo, Sarah – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
Drawing from an ethnographic study with mixed-status siblings who relocated from the United States to Mexico, I argue that access to U.S. papers continues to shape young people's educational lives beyond U.S. borders. Findings illustrate how U.S. passport privileges as well as young people's crossing of national, institutional, and linguistic…

Freidus, Alexandra – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
Drawing on a year of participant observation in an untracked, diversifying middle school, I examine how sixth graders positioned themselves and were positioned by others as "smart" or "not smart."

Drawing on comparative work in primary schools in East Anglia (United Kingdom), Oaxaca (Mexico), and the North Slope of Alaska (United States), we explore what children mean when they say places are "special" to them.

Mathew, Leya – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
This paper documents play in the context of technoscience education in India. Drawing on data from an ethnography of a pharma college, it describes youthful, pedagogic, and professional play. Youthful "masti" subverted rigor. At the college, it was amplified into a festival and monetized by social networking sites. Pedagogic and…

Johnson, Sarah Jean; de la Piedra, María Teresa; Sanmiguel-López, Alejandra; Pérez-Piza, María – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
This case study examines Mexican-heritage children's learning to dance ballet folklórico. Drawing from an interpretive, ethnographic approach, we argue the practices associated with the dance exist within encompassing domains of meaning that are individually enhancing while also prosocial, encouraging membership to the folklórico group and broader…

Rowsell, Jennifer; Abrams, Sandra Schamroth – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
In this article, we consider the notion of tacit modalities as a theory and method for researchers. Based on research studies with individuals across ages and stages of life, we interviewed people about objects that they value, and what pervades all of the stories are tacit, lived properties that objects possess. The research ostensibly sought to…

Cohen, Elisheva – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2022
This study examines the construction, navigation, and contestation of belonging for Syrian refugee youth in the context of inclusive refugee education in Jordan, where refugee students study alongside Jordanian nationals. I demonstrate how belonging is always in flux and constantly being negotiated across local, national, and transnational scales,…

In this address I identify specific and unique roles anthropology can play in the necessary work of decolonizing education. These include: building anti-racist schools that honor all "ways of being human"; decolonizing school leadership and working towards culture creation for equity and anti-racism; decolonizing teaching and learning…

Boonstra, Kathryn E. – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2021
This article examines everyday disciplinary practices in three kindergarten classrooms and their role in identity construction.
