Call for Papers: Minority mobility trajectories: the costs of education-driven social mobility in disadvantaged minority groups
Abel Beremenyi (Central European University) and Judit Durst (Hungarian Academy of Science), editors of the special issue invite contributions to the 'Minority mobility trajectories: the costs of education-driven social mobility in disadvantaged minority groups' issue in Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education.
This special issue enquires into the consequences of education-driven social mobility in the intersection of a variety of costs of social mobility and the distinctiveness of the mobility experiences among members of disadvantaged minority groups. It investigates in different social and geographical settings what upward mobility means for those minorities who experience it, and what are the social implications of their “individual success at the cost of collective failure” (Reay 2018). It aims to offer a comparative perspective through theory-driven, but empirically based contributions.
We expect original research papers reflecting on ethnic/racial minority groups in particular social, political and historical settings, but we strongly encourage contributions on particular disadvantaged groups, such as LGBTQ and communities with stigmatized sexual identity; with intellectual and physical disability, or the mix of the above conditions, that face experiences of struggle, dilemma and paradoxes, complementing the mainstream discussions about minority groups’ position in the nexus of higher education and social mobility.
Deadline for submitting the title, 5 keywords, 200-words abstract: March 5th, 2021.
Full text (6000-9000 words) submission by: July 30th, 2021.
