If you have a question about this talk, please contact Ewa Illakowicz.
The potential for parents to influence their children’s formal and leisure time education has far-reaching impact on social class inequalities for children in many societies. Using narratives from immigrant parents on the significance of arts education, Dr. Hofvander Trulsson will discuss perspectives on middle-class formation in relation to parents’ choices, concerted cultivation and social mobility. How does leisure time learning relate to social class? What are parents’ discourses of arts education and social reproduction/ reconstruction? These questions will be discuss in relation to a partial meta-analysis of studies from Sweden, Norway, Korea, the UK, and the US. The seminar will consist of a presentation and an open discussion with Professor Diane Reay from University of Cambridge, expert in the field of education, social class, gender and ethnicity.
