Despite international congresses and international journals, anthropologies of education differ significantly around the world. Linguistic barriers constrain the flow of ideas, which results in a vast amount of research on educational anthropology that is not published in English or is difficult for international readers to find. This volume responds to the call to attend to educational research outside the United States and to break out of "metropolitan provincialism." A guide to the anthropologies and ethnographies of learning and schooling published in German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Slavic languages, Japanese, and English as a second language, show how scholars in Latin America, Japan, and elsewhere adapt European, American, and other approaches to create new traditions. As the contributors show, educators draw on different foundational research and different theoretical discussions. Thus, this global survey raises new questions and casts a new light on what has become a too-familiar discipline in the United States.

Is there one global culture of schooling, or many national and local cultures? Do educational reforms take school systems on diverging or parallel paths? These case studies from five continents use ethnography and history to challenge the sweeping claims of sociology's world culture theory (neo-institutionalism). They demonstrate how national ministries of education and local schools re-invent every reform. Yet the cases also show that teachers and local reformers operate 'within and against' global models. Anthropologists need to recognize the global presence in local schooling as well as local transformation of global models. This is a collection that scholars in the field of the anthropology of education will not want to be without.
This unique anthology outlines and reconsiders the disciplinary origins of the anthropology of education. The book is a student-oriented compilation of classic articles written by anthropologists who helped pioneer the field some fifty years ago. Their names constitute a veritable who s who in cultural anthropology: Kluckhohn, Linton, Mead, Benedict, and Redfield to name a few, who while accomplished in the general area of cultural anthropology nevertheless gave specific attention to the developing area of the anthropology of education. Also included in the collection are contemporary classics by non-anthropologists such as Paulo Freire, James Baldwin, and Jonathan Kozol, who tackle more recent issues facing education and educators. The readings are termed classic because, collectively, they represent the best of that to which today s students of the anthropology of education should be exposed for a first-rate introduction to the field. Despite their relevance and importance, many of these articles are out-of-print, difficult to find, or otherwise unavailable, thought there is still an abiding need for the insights they provide. The need for the thinking of these pioneers is as great today, arguably greater, than when the articles were written. Their contributions and insights must not succumb to the awful tendency of our times for scholarship to be both instant and disposable. David Julian Hodges, Ph.D. is professor of anthropology at Hunter College of the City University of New York, where he has served with distinction in several capacities: Acting Dean, School of Education; Acting Chairperson, Department of Black and Puerto Rican Studies; and President of the Faculty. Dr. Hodges has conducted ethnographic fieldwork among the Cajuns of Southwestern Louisiana and the Iban of Borneo. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Morris Brown College in Atlanta. He received his Master s degree and Ph.D. from New York University, under the tutelage of anthropologist Ethel J. Alpenfels. Dr. Hodges also engaged in post-doctoral studies at Harvard and Oxford universities.
A state-of-the-art reference on educational ethnography edited by leading journal editors This book brings an international group of writers together to offer an authoritative state-of-the-art review of, and critical reflection on, educational ethnography as it is being theorized and practiced today—from rural and remote settings to virtual and visual posts. It provides a definitive reference point and academic resource for those wishing to learn more about ethnographic research in education and the ways in which it might inform their research as well as their practice. Engaging in equal measure with the history of ethnography, its current state-of play as well as its prospects, The Wiley Handbook of Ethnography of Education covers a range of traditional and contemporary subjects—foundational aims and principles; what constitutes ‘good’ ethnographic practice; the role of theory; global and multi-sited ethnographic methods in education research; ethnography’s many forms (visual, virtual, auto-, and online); networked ethnography and internet resources; and virtual and place-based ethnographic fieldwork. Makes a return to fundamental principles of ethnographic inquiry, and describes and analyzes the many modalities of ethnography existing today Edited by highly-regarded authorities of the subject with contributions from well-known experts in ethnography Reviews both classic ideas in the ethnography of education, such as “grounded theory”, “triangulation”, and “thick description” along with new developments and challenges An ideal source for scholars in libraries as well as researchers out in the field The Wiley Handbook of Ethnography of Education is a definitive reference that is indispensable for anyone involved in educational ethnography and questions of methodology.

This book focuses on race and ethnography, and in particular, it addresses two significant issues. Firstly, leading thinkers and emerging scholars in the field explicate the complicated nature of race intersections, theories, and meanings in educational ethnography. The ethnographic accounts consider schooling, which is then extended to larger educational settings, bound by unique and peculiar histories and locations. By amalgamating this selection of papers into one issue, the book both challenges the effects of educational histories, policies and practices, by interrogating theories and meanings of race, and positions race and racism in ethnography with the hope of presenting new applications and developments in ethnographic methodologies, theories, and practices. The volume then develops the conversation by helping to build scholarship in understanding race meanings, intersections and theories in educational and social sciences. With the escalating attention given to the study of race scholarship in recent years, there is still considerable information that scholars in the field need to know about how ethnographers and ethnography, from diverse comparative and international schools and educational settings, respond to racialized and racist practices, while challenging and developing theories about race and racism in diverse global terrains and locations. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnography and Education.
