Event description

Description

A Sociological Review Foundation Seminar Series

Funded by The Sociological Review Foundation

Organised by Keele University and Bath University, Co-hosted by King's College London


Seminar 2: The landscape of Chinese educational (im)mobilities: Perspectives of larger-scale data

In this seminar, papers will employ larger-scale data to recognise and outline the broad trends of education (im)mobilities within and beyond China. We will focus on interrogating how, if at all, social inequalities are reduced or reproduced through various forms of education (im)mobilities. We will question whether by focusing on (im)mobilities, we are valorising certain forms of educational trajectories over other less prominent forms. Methodologically, we will address the difficulties with getting hold of high quality large-scale data with Chinese contexts. By the end of this seminar we will have a more critical understanding regarding the merits and pitfalls of the grand narratives of educational (im)mobilities within the Chinese contexts.

Confirmed speakers include: Professor Yaojun Li (Manchester University), Professor Futao Huang (Hiroshima University, Japan), Professor Catherine Montgomery (University of Bath), Dr Cora Lingling Xu (Keele University), Dr Lu Wang (University of Hull)


Registration is free of charge. Complimentary lunch and refreshments will be provided.
