About this book

What enables the few working-class people who enter higher education to achieve against the odds? This book offers answers by comparing social contexts, educational institutions and policies in Austria and England to demonstrate a surprising number of similarities behind those who succeed using Bourdieu's concept of habitus.

About the authors

Antonia Kupfer is Professor of Macrosociology at the Technical University Dresden, Germany.

Reviews

“Educational Upward Mobility by Antonia Kupfer is a thought provoking monograph of international comparative research. … Kupfer’s scholarship examines the structural dimensions which inform how working-class people become aspirational. … essential reading for scholars interested in social mobility and the formation of aspirations.” (Garth Stahl, British Journal of Educational Studies, Vol. 65 (1), 2017)
