This special issue is dedicated to ethnographies of social science education in schools across Europe. Contributions included in the volume reflect the diverse legacies of school and classroom ethnography in Austria, England, Germany, Norway, Poland, Spain and Sweden. The authors follow different disciplinary and national traditions in the development and use of ethnographic methodologies. They build on anthropological, sociological and educational research from different European and American schools of thought, but their contributions, based on first-hand observations, share a commitment to understanding how everyday school-based practices connect to and illuminate sociocultural and political processes.
