Debbie Epstein, Johannah Fahey and Jane Kenway's forthcoming article in International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education explores the role of travel in multi sited global ethnography and offers a feminist engagement with it. It considers the idea of fieldwork as a travel practice through three different travel registers; the traveller's tale, critical travel studies and travel as exile.
Aaron Koh and Jane Kenway explore the leadership cultivation practices of one elite school in Singapore, linking the habitus of the state and the school. Their paper, forthcoming in International Studies in Sociology of Education (Special Issue), contributes to two new lines of inquiry; the first about elite schools in Asia, the second about elite schools and globalization.
Jane Kenway and Aaron Koh apply the key concepts of Bourdieu's ‘The State Nobility' to an elite school in Singapore and, in doing so, assess how well Bourdieu's concepts travel beyond France, in their contribution currently under review for Journal of Sociology (Special Issue), Antipodean Fields: Bourdieu Down Under.
Jane Kenway, Johannah Fahey and Aaron Koh investigate the intensity of the phenomenon, and the phenomenon itself, of obtaining access to elite schools, in their chapter of a forthcoming Palgrave MacMillan book edited by C. Maxwell and P. Aggleton.
