Theory as Method in Research: On Bourdieu, Education and Society

Mark Murphy (Editor), Cristina Costa (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

While education researchers have drawn on the work of a wide diversity of theorists over the years, much contemporary theory building in these areas has revolved around the work of Pierre Bourdieu. Theory as Method aims to develop the capacity of students, researchers and teachers to successfully put Bourdieu’s ideas to work in their own research and prepare them effectively for conducting Masters and Doctoral scholarships.

Contextualising the various concepts within the broader oeuvre of Bourdieu’s theoretical approach, Theory as Method will be a useful guide for practitioners, student teachers, researchers, policy makers and academics.
