The socioeconomic dimensions of racial inequality in South Africa: A social space perspective
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Nicola Branson, Johs Hjellbrekke, Murray Leibbrandt, Vimal Ranchhod, Mike Savage, Emma Whitelaw
3d ago
Abstract It is well evidenced that South Africa is characterised by extreme socioeconomic inequality, which is strongly racialised. We offer an original sociological perspective, which departs from established perspectives considering the dynamics of vulnerability and poverty to focus on the structuring of classed and racialised privilege. We map how stocks of economic, cultural, and social capital intersect to generate systematic and structural inequalities in the country and consider how far these are associated with fundamental racial divides. To achieve this, we utilise rich, nationally re ..read more

Mapping out the interpersonal boundary stones in contemporary China: Guanxi network structure and its association with traditional culture endorsement
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Anning Hu
2w ago
Abstract Guanxi research would benefit from an empirical description of holistic guanxi network structures and consideration of sociologically meaningful antecedents such as one's cultural value endorsement. This study, inspired by the relational sociology and drawing on the reported trustworthiness of a rich array of referees in one's guanxi network collected from the Traditional Culture and Cognitive Pattern Survey, identifies two types of guanxi network structures in contemporary China: one is featured by the binary distinction between family and non-family referees, and the other displays ..read more

Risk factors associated with Rohingya refugee girls' education in Bangladesh: A multilevel analysis of survey data
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Mobarak Hossain
2w ago
Abstract In Bangladesh, the world's largest refugee settlement currently shelters approximately one million Rohingya refugees who fled Myanmar to escape military persecution. Educating a significant number of young Rohingya, roughly half of whom are female, presents a significant challenge. Despite the presence of learning centres (LCs) across refugee camps, Rohingya girls may encounter specific barriers to accessing education due to exposure to various risks, such as violence, child marriage, and trauma stemming from past military oppression. This paper investigates the association ..read more

Examining factors influencing Turkish Jewish attitudes towards the Armenian genocide
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Türkay Salim Nefes, Özgür Kaymak, Doğan Gürpınar
2w ago
Abstract The most prominent issue influencing Turkish-Armenian relations is the international recognition of the Armenian genocide. However, there is a notable absence of empirical analyses regarding the perceptions of the genocide among the Turkish population. This study aims to fill this scholarly gap by exploring, for the first time, the perspectives of Turkish Jews. It analyses evidence collected from interviews conducted with 14 Turkish Jews, utilising Stanley Cohen's (2001) theoretical framework, which aids in delineating significant factors by a categorisation of types of acceptance and ..read more

The class differentiation of older age: Capitals and lifestyles
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Will Atkinson
2w ago
Abstract Older people have been overlooked in recent debates over the relationship between age, class and culture despite their prevalence and the conceptual questions they raise. Seeking to bridge mainstream class analysis with debates in social gerontology, especially via a shared turn to Pierre Bourdieu's relational sociology, this paper draws on survey data from the US to examine not only the class position of older people but their internal social and cultural differentiation. I use geometric data analysis to construct a model of the class system, locate older people within it and then ex ..read more

Do you like school? Social class, gender, ethnicity and pupils' educational enjoyment
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Sarah Stopforth, Roxanne Connelly, Vernon Gayle
2w ago
Abstract This study investigates structural inequalities in educational enjoyment in a contemporary cohort of United Kingdom (UK) primary school children. Foundational studies in the sociology of education consistently indicate that the enjoyment of education is stratified by social class, gender, and ethnicity. Analysing data from the UK Millennium Cohort Study, which is a major cohort study that tracks children born at the start of the 21st century, we examine children's enjoyment of both school and individual academic subject areas. The overarching message is that at age 11 most children en ..read more

Exploring normative frameworks of fairness through (relational) institutional habitus in Oxford's undergraduate admissions process
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Ed Penn
1M ago
Abstract In the UK's stratified HE system the question of who is able to access the most selective and prestigious universities is fraught with issues of fairness. This paper explores how decision-makers in Oxford's undergraduate admissions process construct norms of fairness and how such norms inform their reflexive considerations and actions around admissions decisions. Framing such norms as multiple institutional habituses, the paper considers how decision-makers compromise and negotiate between institutional habituses in tension. Further, it presents an augmented conception of institutiona ..read more

Politicians' high‐status signals make less‐educated citizens more supportive of aggression against government: A video‐vignette survey experiment
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Kjell Noordzij, Willem de Koster, Jeroen van der Waal
1M ago
Abstract Various branches of the literature suggest that exposure to the high-status appearances and lifestyles of politicians in contemporary “diploma democracies” affects the attitudes and behavior of less-educated citizens because it confronts them with their lower status in the political domain. Informed by this, we theorize that such exposure inspires docility (a lower subjective social status, weaker feelings of political entitlement) and revolt (anger, more support for aggression against government). To investigate this, we conducted an original, pre-registered, video-vignette survey ex ..read more

What's good for the gander is even better for the goose: Women buying commercial sex in China
Wiley Online Library » The British Journal of Sociology
by Eileen Y. H. Tsang
1M ago
Abstract Research about the commercial sex industry rarely examines the women who are the clients purchasing sexual services. Examining how this challenges gender stereotypes through the undoing gender framework reveals how gender norms can be reshaped through contextual changes. Based on 3 years of ethnographic data from a high-end bar in Tianjin, interviews with 27 female clients and 47 MSWs paint a complex picture of how some women adopted ungendered strategies regarding sexuality. As women take control of their own sexual behavior, they free themselves of some traditional societal exp ..read more
