After Bourdieu: Influence, Critique, Elaboration

This collection of papers devoted to the recognition of the importance of Pierre Bourdieu assiduously avoids both extremes: devotion to or profanation of a “sacred” work. Rather, it charts a course that may frustrate disciples and polemicists alike. It offers ample testimony to the importance of how Bourdieu’s work has inspired further sociological research; yet, it offers some critical insights that suggest gaps in or ways to elaborate portions of Bourdieu’s work in different areas. By following this more sinuous path, the papers offer a deeper understanding of Bourdieu’s work and illustrate creative research inspired by his oeuvre.
