In this article, we use data from ethnography-inspired studies of eight Swedish schools.

Evans, Matthew – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
This article reflects upon the neoliberalisation of higher education and its effects on teaching practice.

The article reflects upon attempts to navigate disciplinary power…

Pratt, Nick; Alderton, Julie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article considers a recent policy initiative in assessment in English primary schools (ages 5-11 years) in which curriculum 'levels' used by teachers to judge pupils' attainment were suddenly removed. Previous work has largely focused on assessment of pupils, but we examine assessment as an activity through which teachers reproduce their…

Nairz-Wirth, Erna; Feldmann, Klaus – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
While various forms of teachers' habitus have been described in education studies, little consideration has so far been given to their interaction with fields in schools. This article draws on Bourdieu's theory and related concepts of field, habitus, capital and doxa to explore types of teacher professionalism, especially in Austrian secondary…

Grinberg, Silvia – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
A governmentality ethnographic approach is adopted to examine the everyday making of school in Buenos Aires slums. By addressing events at the intersection of the life of school and of the neighborhood, in this article we problematize schooling -- how it is put together and the tensions that beset it on a daily basis. The notion of the self-made…

Inzunza, Jorge; Assael, Jenny; Cornejo, Rodrigo; Redondo, Jesus – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Chile is recognized in the educational policy field as one of the first laboratories of neoliberal initiatives. These policies, initiated under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, did not change with the new democratic governments after 1990. This characteristic led international organizations to promote the Chilean policies in different…

Hernandez, Ivette – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article is about collective identity, learning processes and political agency in the Chilean student movement.

Friedman, Jonathan Z. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
Cosmopolitanism has been cast by some in recent years as a form of cultural capital, disproportionately available to students on elite educational pathways. This article tests this supposition, by comparing the enactment of global citizenship education reforms at two high-status and two low-status universities in the United Kingdom. These…
