Our 2nd meeting this term is taking place on the 11th of Oct, 4:00 – 5.30 pm in Room AG9 (Ellen Wilkinson Building).
Based on our experience of our first reading (of the book ‘Weight of the world’), we have now decided to read the following two chapters:
i) ‘The order of things’ by Bourdieu (pp. 60 – 76)
ii) ‘Understanding’ by Bourdieu (pp. 600 – 626)
Hopefully reading ‘understanding’ will also give us a theoretical insight into the case studies. Don’t be alarmed by the number of pages as the case studies are fairly manageable (contra to Bourdieu’s usual style of writing ).
The chapters can be found here:
5 photocopies of the readings will be available in room B4.10 (EW) from Monday (10th October) onwards. Any questions please contact Sophina Qasim.
