              Youth, Class and Everyday Struggles

              Youth, Class and Everyday Struggles (Paperback)

              The concept of everyday struggles can enliven our understanding of the lives of young people and how social class is made and remade. This book invokes a Bourdieusian spirit to think about the ways young people are pushed and pulled by the normative demands directed at them from ...an early age, whilst they reflexively understand that allegedly available incentives for making the `right' choices and working hard - financial and familial security, social status and job satisfaction - are a declining prospect. In Youth, Class and Everyday Struggles, the figures of those classed as 'hipsters' and 'bogans' are used to analyse how representation works to form a symbolic and moral economy that produces and polices fuzzy class boundaries. Further to this, the practices of young people around DIY cultures are analysed to illustrate struggles to create a satisfying and meaningful existence while negotiating between study, work and creative passions. By thinking through different modalities of struggles, which revolve around meaning making and identity, creativity and authenticity, Threadgold brings Bourdieu's sociological practice together with theories of affect, emotion, morals and values to broaden our understanding of how young people make choices, adapt, strategise, succeed, fail and make do. Youth, Class and Everyday Struggles will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as postdoctoral researchers, of fields including: Youth Studies, Class and Inequality, Work and Careers, Subcultures, Media and Creative Industries, Social Theory and Bourdieusian Theory.

              Bourdieusian Prospects (Paperback)

              Bourdieusian Prospects considers the ongoing relevance of Bourdieu's social theory for contemporary social science. Breaking with the tendency to reflect on Bourdieu's legacies, it brings established and emergent scholars together to debate the futures of a specifically Bourdieus...ian sociology. Driven by a central leitmotif in Bourdieu's oeuvre, namely, that his work not be blindly appropriated but actively interpreted, contributors to this volume set out to map the potentials of Bourdieusian inflected social science. While for many social scientists the empirical and theoretical developments of the twenty-first century mark a limit point of Bourdieusian social theory, this collection charts both how and why a Bourdieusian sociology has a future, which is crucial for the ongoing development and roll out of an engaged, relevant and critical social science.

              Bourdieusian Prospects contributes to scholarship on the social theory of Pierre Bourdieu. Breaking with the tendency to reflect on Bourdieu's legacies, it brings established and emergent scholars together to debate the futures of a specifically Bourdieusian sociology. Driven by ...a central leitmotif in Bourdieu's oeuvre, namely, that his work not be blindly appropriated, but actively interpreted, contributors to this volume set out to map the potentials of Bourdieusian sociology. In so doing the volume brings Bourdieu's work into direct dialogue with key ideas in the contemporary social sciences, including those associated with actor network theory, process philosophy, the French pragmatic school and the new materialism. Bourdieusian Prospects thus sets new terms for the ongoing relevance of and prospects for a Bourdieusian inflected social science.

              International Perspectives on Theorizing Aspiration offers new insights and guidance for those looking to use Bourdieu's tools in an educational context, with a focus on how the tools can be applied to issues of aspiration. Written by an international line-up of contributors from... the UK, USA, Australia, South Africa and Spain, the book explores how Bourdieu's tools have been applied in recent cutting-edge educational research on a range of issues including migration, ethnicity, class and austerity. The contributors consider how aspiration is theorized in sociology, as well as exploring the structure/agency debates, before recapitulating Bourdieu's tools and their applicability in educational contexts. A key question running through the chapters is: how does social theory shape research? Including a glossary of Bourdieusian terms and recommended reading lists, this is essential reading for anyone looking to use Bourdieu in their research and for those working on aspiration in an educational research setting.

              This is the first comprehensive engagement of Pierre Bourdieu's influential sociology with affect theory. It draws on empirical research and everyday examples from sociology to develop an original theory of Affective Affinities, deepening our understanding of how everyday moments... contribute to constructs and remaking of social class.
