Nylund, Mattias; Ledman, Kristina; Rosvall, Per-Åke; Rönnlund, Maria – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020

Loh, Chin Ee; Sun, Baoqi – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2020
The acquisition of cultural capital can only be understood in the light of the formation of habitus, including the socialisation process, and in the context of the field in which any such capital has value.

This article considers the understandings of space and place amongst a group of disaffected students within an institution that had been in a state of flux over a number of years.

Sortkaer, Bent – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This study draws on the concept of cultural capital to determine whether the cultural capital of students is related to their perceptions of classroom interactions, specifically teacher--student feedback practices.

Many approaches to explaining educational inequalities relate explicitly and implicitly to benefits of education, and rational choice theories in particular consider monetary benefits. We specify a concept of the value of education that allows for an empirical analysis of educational benefits, considering both monetary and non-monetary dimensions…

Sellers, Chelsea – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
The benefits of reading for pleasure and positive reader identities have been well established in previous research. However, much discussion regarding young people's reading is underpinned by a discourse of deficit, placing emphasis on what young people should be reading. In an attempt to move away from this discourse, this article considers…

Samson, Maxim G. M. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Faith schools may play an important role in reproducing ethnoreligious identities, yet research into Jewish schools has tended to overlook students' personalised conceptualisations of faith. Instead, it has regularly utilised restrictive 'indicators' of ethnoreligious practice in order to gauge these institutions' effectiveness in 'strengthening'…

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.

Thomson, Pat; Hall, Christine; Earl, Lexi; Geppert, Corinna – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
The arts are under threat in English schools. But some schools and teachers work against the trend. To understand how they continue to offer rich arts experiences to students, we bring Bourdieusian thinking to arts teacher practices that were common across the 30 secondary schools we studied for three years. In addition to a flexible approach to…
