Call for Papers: Mobility and Education

New Book Series


For Wisdom and Awareness

Mobility Studies and Education

Series Editor: Jane van Galen, University of Washinton, Bothell


Works in Mobility Studies and Education will explore the complicated and shifting landscapes of wealth, opportunity, social class, and education in the changing global economic landscape, particularly at the intersections of race, ethnicity, religion, and gender. The Series includes work on education and social mobility within three major themes:

• Interrogation of stories of educational "success" against the odds for what these cases might teach about social class itself, about the depths of economic and educational constraints that have been surmounted, about the costs of those journeys, or about the long-term social and economic trajectories of class border crossers.

• Examination of the psycho-social processes by which people traverse class borders, including the social construction of ambition and achievement in young people marginalized from the academic mainstream by class, race, or gender. Works in the series will illuminate the complicated and contested processes of identity formation among those who attain upward mobility via success in school.
