(Special Issue of Journal of Sociology and social Anthropology - No. 6)

Childrenchildhood

This special issue has its roots in a long term collaborative relationship between scholars at the Universities of Hyderabad (UoH) and Johannesburg (UJ). The articles solicited touch on these issues embedded within a select number of central themes. The twelve papers in this special issue offer original research that reflects in different ways on the university as a place in which identities are socially constructed and resisted, a site where citizens actively seek redress and accessible higher education, as enclaves encouraging select social networks and class mobility, as a facilitator of social justice discourses, and as a context wrestling with revisions and reinventions of curricula.
