WEBINAR: Dr. Sabita Ramlal: The role of social capital in higher education access

Zoom

The seminar will look at the role of social capital in education access and success - K12 and higher education using a Bordieuan understanding of the role of the education system in reproducing social inequality. The seminar will explore how the concept of social capital as a non-financial factor can help us to understand higher education access for people from ‘marginalised’ or ‘disadvantaged groups’ and what policy implications arise from these understandings. The presentation will look at previous research, as well as a case study in a developing country context in the Caribbean. In addition, the possibilities and limitations to extend the concept of social capital in a plural, postcolonial society will be discussed.
