Apologies the timing of this event has been changed from the original invitation.
'Identities, inequalities and education'
In this talk I discuss three core ideas that I think are helpful for understanding how issues of 'identity' play a part in generating and sustaining educational inequalities. Drawing on data from research studies that I have conducted over the past two decades (e.g. studies on Muslim students; British Chinese students ;and students' science and career aspirations) I explore the complexity of educational inequalities and intertwinings of gender, ethnicity and social class. I conclude with some implications for policy and practice on how we might enact a more equitable approach to education.
Louise Archer is professor of sociology of education whose research is in the sociology of education and education policy.She is interested in identities and inequalities of ‘race’, gender and social class within compulsory and post-compulsory education. She is currently leading the ASPIRES project, a 5 year longitudinal ESRC project on children’s science aspirations and career choice (age 10-14) and am the lead coordinator of the ESRC’s Targeted Initiative on Science and Mathematics Education.
