One might question our sanity, and not see any connection between a sociological laboratory and elephants, and rightfully so. It is due to the language barrier that this wordplay remains unclear to our English-speaking readers. If you take the first letters of the name of our laboratory in Russian, which is Laboratoria (Laboratory) Sotsiologii (of Sociology) Obrazovania (in Education) I Nauki (and Science), you will get letters L, S, O, and N. Together, they make SLON, which in Russian means “elephant”. This is precisely why we have been using this nickname for ourselves, and why you see the little elephant figure in the top left corner of our website. Besides, elephants are great animals, known for their social complexity and strong family bonds, so why not them?
Svetlana Savelyeva, the deputy head of the Laboratory of Sociology in Education and Science, has been there from the very beginning, and witnessed its development throughout the years. Read her story to learn more about the history of SLON and its first expeditions, and find out how we started our research on schools.
In the middle of October 2019, a big conference took place: the ID Conference, dedicated to the subjects of migration and diversity. Sociology in Education and Science Laboratory has organized a whole section on this conference - a section on «Migration, inequality, and identity», as well as presented works by Daniel Alexandrov and Svetlana Savelieva.
What topics were discussed in this section, why we need to talk about migration, and why it’s important to look at both theoretical and practical sides of it - you can read in new material.
The Laboratory has presented its report on the “School choice” project at the International Conference held by the European Association for Education Law and Policy (ELA) in Lisbon.
