Data comes from a larger ethnographic study of discourses and practices of citizenship in these schools. Students approached their social class from a denial or misrecognition standpoint, involving themselves in the practice of <em>arribismo</em> or <em>abajismo</em>, to appear as belonging to an upper or lower social class, respectively. This can be understood as a form of Class Neurosis (De Gaulejac, 2000), involving feelings of guilt, inferiority and rejection linked to social origin. These phenomena were promoted through the school culture and the discourse from adults, which interpellated students´ subjectivity, whose practices included code-switching and a vigilance of themselves and their classmates. The study showed how schools help maintain the social structure through complacency with the meritocratic promise, affecting how students see themselves as part of their communities, how they build expectations about the future, and how they understand that they can become civically engaged.</p> Andrea Lopez Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sociology of Education 2022-10-25 2022-10-25 11 3 Moving from a segregated to a coeducational context: Exploring Iranian female medical students' ownership and investment in language learning <p>The present study examined Iranian female medical students' transition from a segregated school system to a coeducational university context to uncover how they invested in their learning in the new context. The participants of this qualitative study were 23 female medical students, taking a general English language course in a mixed class of 54 students. This was their first experience of being in a coeducational environment. During the term the researchers/instructors observed the class, and also the students were interviewed to examine their understanding and feelings about this experience and its influence on their learning. The data were analyzed through thematic analysis. Taking Norton's (2015) investment model as a point of departure, the findings showed that female students invested in language learning by focusing on the capital, identity, and ideology that they were dealing with in the coeducational class. The findings showed that despite the common belief in the Iranian society that female learners are shy in coeducational settings, the participants invested in learning and owned their identity as medical students. They considered the class as a miniature setting to learn how to cooperate effectively with the male students to be ready for the mixed environment of their future profession.</p> Hossein Navidinia Nargess Hekmati Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sociology of Education 2022-10-25 2022-10-25 11 3 Intercultural Sensitivity of Educational Management Students as the Future’s Educational Leaders in Indonesia <p>Multicultural education of Indonesia calls for future’s educational leaders with a high level of intercultural sensitivity (IS). Hence, this mixed-method study investigated the IS of 784 educational management students from 10 universities in Indonesia, and their representatives’ IS factors. They were recruited as the samples because their background knowledge supports their profiles as the future’s educational leaders. The first objective was pursued by conducting a quantitative survey, and the second objective was pursued by undertaking an instrumental case study. This study revealed that the educational management students had a high level of IS as demonstrated by high values of all IS domains. Their high IS level was influenced by three factors which entailed experiences of living with diversity, noticing the multiculturalism of Indonesia, and accepting differences. At the end of discussion and conclusion sections, implications and suggestions for future’s studies are given.</p> Murni Yanto Idi Warsah Ruly Morganna Imron Muttaqin Destriani Destriani Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sociology of Education 2022-10-25 2022-10-25 11 3
