College Building, C219/C220, Hendon campus
Dr Spyros Themelis, Senior Lecturer in Education, launches his book 'Social Change and Education in Greece' (Palgrave Macmillan).
About the book
The postwar orthodoxy postulated that education is both a mechanism for upward social mobility and an engine for economic growth. This book challenges these mainstream conceptions. Using Greece and the Roma people in particular as a case study, the author examines qualitative and quantitative social mobility findings to explore the changes associated with education and to analyse their importance for individuals and society.
The launch will be preceded by tea and followed with a wine reception. Please RSVP by 18 April 2013. For further information, please contact Daniela Pantica.
