Abstract

A common theme across all chapters in this book is that interaction between schooling and students is influenced by a range of social and cultural factors. This chapter sets out to demonstrate how certain sets of social and cultural factors—in particular public notions of a differentiated other—hold the potential to draw disparate groups of people together. In particular, we find groups which would not usually be allies banded together through their involvement in processes of othering. In many cases such processes transcend the traditional lines of division that characterize and separate the groups generating this discourse.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
