Cameron McCarthy, 2012-2013 Faculty Fellow and professor of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership, will present “Argonauts of the Gentrified Working Class: Reconsidering Transnational Elite Class Theory in Light of Global Ethnographic Research in British Grammar Schools in Barbados.”

He will discuss his paper, which reports on the striking finding coming out of his three-year global ethnographic study done in two Barbadian elite schools (Old Cloisters and Ardent Arbors): the unexpected presence of substantial members of black gentrified working-class youth. These youngsters articulate global ambitions for tertiary education and professional futures in North America.

Light refreshments will be provided.
