Working-class scholars feel the bite of class

Published:

Professor Geraldine Van Bueren wrote to the Times Higher Education letters about working-class scholars. She writes: “The establishment of the Association of Working Class Academics has been warmly appreciated. Even within the pages of Times Higher Education, accounts have been published anonymously because some fear that their openness about their identity will impede their careers. Hence, there is clearly a challenge for academia when many who come from working-class backgrounds feel that they cannot be open about a vital and valued part of their identity.”
