Jones, Lisa; Maguire, Meg – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
As working-class female academics, this paper examines the constructions of our identities focusing on both what unites and differentiates us as working-class women. We focus on the structuring forces in our lives such as our class, our whiteness and our gender, but we also discuss how our experiences have been shaped by space and place as a…

Muñoz-García, Ana Luisa – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
This article focuses on the ways in which international students from Chile narrate their experiences in the US, and the extent to which mobility across national borders reshapes social class understandings and privilege. To complete this study, I conducted 13 in-depth interviews and a focus group with five Chilean graduate international students…

Bathmaker, Ann-Marie – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
This paper explores ways in which university students articulate understandings of their class positions and perceptions of opportunities for social mobility. The promise that participation in higher education (HE) would lead to social mobility for all has been central to the project of widening participation. However, in the twenty-first century,…

Walkerdine, Valerie – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
Drawing on my own experience as a working-class academic, as well of that of working-class students in the present, I discuss how the experience for working-class students in elite universities still includes many aspects of classism, even when those students can, and do, do very well indeed and even when policies are apparently in place to…

Rickett, Bridgette; Morris, Anna – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
Previous research exploring how working-class women experience UK Higher Education (HE) work has made evident recurring themes around social segregation and corresponding difficulties with feeling they belong.

Roberts, Paul – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
The interaction between doctoral education and social class is under-researched, yet is perceived to play an important part in securing social mobility. Research that does exist tends to focus on issues of access or transition, rather than considering experiences during the doctorate. This article focuses on doctoral students' experiences of…

Morley, Louise; Lund, Rebecca W. B. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
Women leaders are frequently treated as one class -- a homogenised group with essentialised skills and competencies in binary relationship to male leaders. We explore how feminist ways of knowing gender and leadership, and circulations of affects, shape women's diverse leadership practices and identities within the neoliberal, and neuroliberal…

Hey, Valerie; Leaney, Sarah; Leyton, Daniel – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
"Class Matters," by Mahony and Zmroczek (1997), was an important collection marking working-class women's contribution to the academy and society. In taking up the question of class, this paper considers the ways in which a partial and particular discourse reflected its author's material circumstances, including her preferred conceptual…

Roulston, Stephen; Hansson, Ulf – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
There is considerable literature concerning the impact of education in divided societies. Some seek to defend separate schools, often for different faith groups, while others stress the benefits of school integration on social cohesiveness. Contact theory has been employed in efforts in many countries to address social discord. Northern Ireland is…

Gerrard, Jessica – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
Contemporary politics has brought the figure of the 'uneducated' into glaring view, from Trump's 'love' of the 'poorly educated' to analyses suggesting a supposed 'uneducated populous' is responsible for the rise of far-right politics. In this paper I respond to this so-called 'post-truth' contemporary moment by considering how education underpins…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
This essay draws on the concept of "agonistic emotions" and "affects" to think with some of the arguments of Chantal Mouffe's political theory and discusses what this means pedagogically in handling far right rhetoric in the classroom. To show the possibilities of this theorization of agonistic emotions and affects, the essay…

Perry-Hazan, Lotem – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
This paper delineates the conflicts that can arise between student participation and other rights and interests and presents a model that conceptualises these conflicts. It fills a gap in the developing literature on participation rights in education, which has yet to systematically address the possible ramifications of practices that implement…

Manathunga, Catherine; Qi, Jing; Bunda, Tracey; Singh, Michael – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2021
In this article, we introduce a time mapping methodology to chart the impact of transcultural and First Nations' histories, geographies and cultural knowledges on doctoral education. Drawing upon a 'Southern', postcolonial-decolonial theoretical framing and extending textual life history methodologies, we argue that time mapping is a visual…
