Class, Dispositions and Radical Politics - a Rejoinder

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper is a rejoinder to James Avis’paper: A Note on Class, Dispositions
and Radical Politics which is, in turn, a critique of the opening chapter of the
book Education and Working-Class Youth: Reshaping the Politics of Inclusion,
written by the authors of this article. Here we deal with each of the criticisms
raised by Avis, including his accusation that our position is reductionist and
fails to recognise the complex nature of social class in contemporary society. In
doing this, we re-emphasise our relational perspective on education and social
class.
