Teachers and the emotional dimensions of class in resource-affected rural Australia
Pini, Barbara, Price, Robin A., & McDonald, Paula K. (2010) Teachers and the emotional dimensions of class in resource-affected rural Australia. British Journal of Sociology of Education, 31(1), pp. 17-30.
In recent years, a 'cultural turn' in the study of class has resulted in a rich body of work detailing the ways in which class advantage and disadvantage are emotionally inscribed and embodied in educational settings. To date, however, much of this literature has focused on the urban sphere. In order to address this gap in the literature, this paper focuses on the affective evaluations made by teachers employed in rural and remote Australian schools of students' families, bodies, expectations and practices. The central argument is that moral ascriptions of class by the teachers are powerfully shaped by dominant socio-cultural constructions of rurality that equate 'the rural' with agriculture.
