Hattam, Robert and Smyth, John (2015) Thinking Past Educational Disadvantage, and Theories of Reproduction. Sociology, 49 (2). pp. 270-286. ISSN 0038-0385

This article proposes a critique of critical sociology of education as a means of thinking past theories of reproduction which are the doxa for our field. The article problematizes key words such as ‘disadvantage’ and pursues a critique of reproduction theory, drawing on Rancière’s foregrounding of equality as an axiom rather than an outcome. The article goes some way towards showing how we might practically think past theories of reproduction by offering an alternative version of educational equality.
