Significant currents of ethnographic research on education: majorities, minorities and migrations across the Americas
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractIn this article we reflect upon differences and similarities among the seven articles included in this dossier, which represent consolidated lines of ethnographic research in five countries of the Americas. The contributions focus on aspects of the theme of the XIII Simposio Interamericano de Etnografía de la Educación (UCLA, 2013): Majorities, minorities and migrants. Recent studies in these lines explore the ways in which diverse community and network resources, structural inequalities, and transnational realities impact educational processes both within and beyond formal schooling. Together they pose significant conceptual and methodological challenges for educational research.
