Application of Bourdieuian Theory to the Inclusion of Students with Learning/Physical Challenges in Multicultural School Settings
DiGiorgio, Carla
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v13 n2 p179-194 Mar 2009
Sociologist Pierre Bourdieu has contributed much to the way the field of sociology understands the social rules and structures that guide human interaction and self-understanding. Bourdieu's work has also been applied to education, and disability issues. In this paper Bourdieu's social theory is presented and applied to the notion of inclusion in a multicultural school. This Bourdieuian perspective is applied to the literature surrounding the development of a theory of inclusion in multicultural schools. Questions and implications suggest further research into the relationship between cultural and disability issues in inclusion.
