2018, ISBN: 978-987-722-328-6
This book utilises a broadly critical cultural approach to explain access and retention. In recent years, the use of cultural approaches has made a significant contribution to how we understand societies and particularly social institutions undergoing transition. The impact of these approaches is evident in the social sciences and in interdis- ciplinary fields such as education, where different dimensions and perspectives within respective cultural approaches have been applied to a variety of topics.
