Tawasil, Amina – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
The Iranian howzevi (seminarian) have been key to the Islamic regime's development. This paper takes as its critical focus the branding of the howzevi as the unenlightened for their support of the regime. I take de Certeau's reading as poaching to look at how life scripts or ideologies failed to work through women's bodies. Drawing on fifteen…

Solano-Campos, Ana – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This ethnographic case study explores Nicaragua--Costa Rica cross-border dynamics, one of the most important South-South migration flows in the Central American region.

Thorkelson, Eli – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Through an ethnographic case study of campus politics at a Parisian university, this paper shows that neoliberal university reforms in France failed to create neoliberal subjectivities. Instead, the reforms provoked conflicts between direct and representative democracy, traditions which had organized post-1960s French university culture. These…

Hornberger, Nancy H.; Kvietok Dueñas, Frances – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Drawing on an ethnographic monitoring engagement with Kichwa intercultural bilingual educators in the Peruvian Amazon, we argue for ethnographic monitoring as a method and the continua of biliteracy as a heuristic for mapping biliteracy teaching in Indigenous contexts of bilingualism. Through our mapping, we uncover tensions in the teaching of…

Woodson, Ashley N. – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This article uses the construct of "racial code word" to advance theory about unspoken, racialized expectations that accompany seemingly neutral historical concepts. Critical race ethnographic methods were used to examine how eight black teenagers made sense of the term "civil rights leader" and the assumptions that supported…

Herron, Melinda – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
For anthropologists working with young people in schools, an ambiguous and anxiety-provoking balancing act is required; how can the researcher align with the relational sensibilities of ethnography while also adhering to the strict boundaries and risk management ethos of school and university ethics? Tracing research relationships developed with…

Levy, Jordan – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This article examines how teachers in post-coup Honduras approached implementing neoliberal school finance reforms with which they disagreed. The laws in question decentralize national public education and demand that teachers secure funding for basic school infrastructure and academic programs from private businesses. I show how teachers…

Lundqvist, Ulla – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Detailed, longitudinal ethnographic approaches that explore how school success and failure evolve as interdependent sociohistorical positions are important for understanding how such processes affect unintended educational inequity in schooling. This study describes how one student comes to inhabit the identity of a disruptive student relative to…

Niesz, Tricia – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Although social movements are frequently background and occasionally foreground in the studies of anthropologists of education, the "knowledges" produced by movements have seldom been a focus of our work. In this Reflection on the Field, I argue that investigating the production and circulation of social movement knowledges, as…

Sano, Koji – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
This ethnographic study reconsiders the concept of tribe and its influence on group boundary-making practices in South Sudan. The findings revealed ways in which students manipulated their group boundaries by giving different meanings to nominal category of tribe. Further, the study unveiled that, moving in and out from those boundaries, students…

Smith Kondo, Chelda – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Educational research widely neglects the effectiveness of multicultural education courses among teacher candidates of color (TCCs).

Jayadeva, Sazana – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2019
Focusing on low-cost English-medium schools, this article investigates whether the ideology of the transformative potential of English-medium education squares with most people's experiences of this education in urban India. It shows how such schools enable socioeconomic mobility among the middle classes while also creating new forms of…

Ehret, Christian – Anthropology & Education Quarterly, 2018
Although nonrepresentational theory has enriched anthropologists' understanding of affect in social and cultural life, it has a short history in education research, where representational paradigms dominate. This article develops nonrepresentational theories of moments, temporal textures, and affective pedagogies in order to evoke affects of…
