Description

This book uses Bourdieu's sociological approach for research as a jumping off point for framing our understandings and analyses of China and Chinese education. Three major themes-inequality, competition, and change-are explored across several theoretical and contextual bases. Bringing together top scholars in the field, the volume examines empirical studies that analyse social (im)mobility through education for students affected by the social divides of class, culture and rural/urban locations; teacher identity and the field of schooling in the current Chinese environment and going forward; and the university as an institution for the production of knowledge about education in the globalizing academy. Offering insights into the historical and cultural context for the China's educational landscape, the contributions of this book revisit Bourdieusian concepts from a new empirical vantage point and bring together key studies that illuminate new pathways for the study of Chinese sociology of education.
