Bige Saatcioglu, Julie L. Examinations of the moral and ethical dimensions in identity construction are scant in consumer research. This ethnography of a trailer-park neighborhood investigates how different moral dispositions shape low-income, working-class residents' consumption practices and status negotiations.

Pierre Bourdieu

Habitus is created through a social, rather than individual process leading to patterns that are enduring and transferrable from one context to another, but that also shift in relation to specific contexts and over time. These forms of capital may be equally important, and can be accumulated and transferred from one arena to another Navarro The shift from material to cultural and symbolic forms of capital is to a large extent what hides the causes of inequality. A field is a network, structure or set of relationships which may be intellectual, religious, educational, cultural, etc. Navarro

Mobilization: An International Quarterly 1 June ; 13 2 : — This article draws on Bourdieu's sociological approach to expand social movement theory, while offering sociologically robust direction for movements themselves. In Bourdieu's theory, practical action is produced by the habitus. Generated in its social field, habitus conveys cultural encoding yet in a nondeterministic manner. In a Bourdieusian approach, environmental social movement organizations become the social space in which a logic of practice consistent with movement goals can be "caught" through the informal or incidental learning that occurs as a result of participation with social movement organizations. I compare Bourdieu's theory of practice with Eyerman and Jamison's view of social movements as cognitive praxis. I argue that the environmental movement would be better served by conceptualizing itself as working to create an ecological habitus which would underpin ecological lifestyles and environmental social change.

Bourdieu, Habitus and Social Research

Persistent health inequalities pose a continued research and policy challenge in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Drawing on Bourdieu's theory of social practice, this paper develops an integrated perspective by observing associations between health and structured lifestyle practices. Using the UK Understanding Society household survey, a taxonomy of eight lifestyle clusters is identified, which exhibit significant health inequalities on a number of indicators.

Holroyd lboro. This paper looks at the importance of the body in terms of young people's work to construct self, and proposes that the school can function as a site in which a great deal of this body work gets played out. It draws on data from a larger study concerned with issues relating to young people, identity and physical culture, in which Bourdieu's concepts of practice, field, habitus and capital provide a theoretical framework for understanding young people's engagement with five core social fields; family, school, media, peers and physical culture. The value of regarding the social world as a 'multi-dimensional space' Bourdieu, b in this way, is that it allows for the fact that 'young people have many identities and live within a variety of contexts - all of which contribute to their development of self' Kivel, pp. This discussion seeks to identify some of the key issues within the data that relate specifically to the field of school, and to provide an indication as to how this field is structured, and hence experienced, for and by young people.

Bourdieu's work was primarily concerned with the dynamics of power in society, especially the diverse and subtle ways in which power is transferred and social order is maintained within and across generations. In conscious opposition to the idealist tradition of much of Western philosophy , his work often emphasized the corporeal nature of social life and stressed the role of practice and embodiment in social dynamics. Bourdieu was a prolific author, producing hundreds of articles and three dozen books, nearly all of which are now available in English.

Empirical Investigations of Social Space

Я спас вас, сделав это заранее. Можешь представить себе последствия, если бы это обнаружилось, когда Попрыгунчик был бы уже внедрен. - Так или иначе, - парировала Сьюзан, - теперь мы имеем параноиков из Фонда электронных границ, уверенных, что черный ход есть во всех наших алгоритмах. - А это не так? - язвительно заметил Хейл. Сьюзан холодно на него посмотрела.

Хейл наклонил голову набок, явно заинтригованный такой скрытностью. И, как бы желая обратить все в игру, сделал еще один шаг. Но он не был готов к тому, что произошло в следующее мгновение.

 - Жаль, что бедняге это не помогло. Он принялся рассматривать руки покойного. Ничего подобного ему никогда не приходилось видеть.
