Bourdieu and Academic Capitalism: Faculty "Habitus" in Materials Science and Engineering
Mendoza, Pilar; Kuntz, Aaron M.; Berger, Joseph B.
Journal of Higher Education, v83 n4 p558-581 Jul-Aug 2012
We present Bourdieu's notions of field, capital, "habitus," and strategy and how these concepts apply today in light of academic capitalism using an empirical study of faculty work in one specific field in engineering that exemplifies current tendencies brought by academic capitalism. We conclude with a discussion of practical implications. (Contains 1 table.)
