Changing social relations and changing self: Experiences of low-income students in China’s elite universities

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Since 1997, China’s universities have charged students full tuition. Low-income students and their financial needs have attracted more and more attention. In this paper, I examine the circumstances of low-income students in China’s elite universities, who are “class minorities” in their institutions. How are these unrepresentative students from economically needy backgrounds interacting with institutions that educate the nation’s political, economic, and academic elite? Largely based on data gathered through in-depth interviews with low-income students in Peking University and Tsinghua University, this paper examines these students’ educational and social integration, how these change as students advance through their university careers, and how these changes are related to their changing relations with families and peers.
