Jayadeva, Sazana; Brooks, Rachel; Abrahams, Jessie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2022
There is a growing body of scholarship on how students see themselves, and also on how they are conceptualised by other social actors.

Yet, his insistence that economic capital is the 'root' of these other capitals is often overlooked or downplayed. This paper addresses this lacuna. While it gestures to Bourdieu's other capitals,…
