about this item

Integrating work from several different national systems of scholarship, A Companion to the Anthropology of Education presents a comprehensive and state-of-the-art overview of the field of anthropology of education. Leading educational anthropologists examine everyday educational processes in culturally diverse settings, and the impacts on those processes of history, language policies, geographically specific problems and solutions, governmental mandates, literacy, inequality, multiculturalism, and more. Each contributor evaluates the key anthropological advances, arguments and approaches that inform the field's research. The Companion presents both theoretical and applied perspectives on important processes of education, in specific locations and worldwide.
