Product Description

About the Author

I work at the nexus of sociology and cultural studies and my research interests comprise childhood and youth studies, particularly sexuality, gender and race in education and in popular culture, and the cultural politics of education. Overall, my focus is on the dominant and how it is held in place, though this often involves investigating the experiences of those in subordinated, marginalised and/or stigmatised groups. I am especially concerned with how children negotiate these ‘differences that make a difference’ and their agency in the context of institutional settings such as schools and families.

    Education policy particularly in relation to globalisation and socio-cultural change
    Socio-cultural studies of diverse youthful identities and education
    Education, media and consumer cultures
    Elite Schools around the world and the formation of transnational elites

Fields of Research (FOR)

    Higher Education
    Gender, Sexuality and Education
    Education Policy

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jay Aitch on 10 Feb. 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a great book if you want to know the inside story on how to get ahead in academia. There is great detail in it's discussion of many interesting acadmemic areas particularly in the building of an appropriate CV which I found invaluable. Everything from dress codes to entry routes are covered and as a newcomer to Higher Ed I feel it's benefits have paid off already.
