Synopsis

Making Spaces Citizenship and Difference in Schools by Na Na

This book uses an ethnographic, cross-cultural approach to study everyday life in secondary schools in London and Helsinki. Employing a metaphor of dance, it explores the relationship between the official school (correct steps), the informal school (improvised steps) and the physical school (the ballroom). Practices and processes of differentiation, marginalization and cooperation are explored in relation to gender and its intersections with social class and ethnicity.
