A new paper coauthored by Professor of Education Adam Howard has just been published in the British Journal of Sociology of Education. The paper, “Conferred cosmopolitanism: class-making strategies of elite schools across the world,” looks at how elite schools “work to produce subjects that will thrive in a globalized world.” Howard and his coauthor, Claire Maxwell (University of Copenhagen), conclude that “ultimately, these elite institutions are seeking to create an elite class by conferring a cosmopolitan status on their students which will have direct convertibility for the specific futures being envisioned for them.”
