Siebers, Hans – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Following Gellner, citizenship education has often been framed in terms of nationalism.

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…

This article engages with the implications of this affective and masculinist 'post-truth' era for higher education and analyses the narratives…
