Gleeson, Denis; Davies, Jenifer; Wheeler, Eunice – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2005
This paper examines the changing nature of professional practice in English further education. At a time when neo-liberal reform has significantly impacted on this under-researched and over-market-tested sector, little is known about who its practitioners are and how they construct meaning in their work. Sociological interest in the field has…

Brown, Tony; England, Janice – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper addresses the issue of how human beings construct themselves as subjects and the parameters within which this is achieved.

Gray, Sandra Leaton – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper examines notions of 'educational time' with particular reference to the work of Basil Bernstein.

Vidovich, Lesley – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper moves beyond a conceptualization of globalization as a top-down imposition of policy directions 'from above' to focus on the active two-way dynamics between global, national and local levels of policy processes. Arguably, the particular 'case' examined here of 'quality' policy is especially appropriate as quality policy and…

Kenway, Jane; McLeod, Julie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper considers Bourdieu's concepts of perspectivism and reflexivity, looking particularly at how he develops arguments about these in his recent work, The Weight of the World (1999) and Pascalian Meditations (2000b). We explicate Bourdieu's distinctive purposes and deployment of these terms and approaches, and discuss how this compares with…

Moore, Rob – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper attempts to explicate and locate the concept of 'cultural capital' in terms of Pierre Bourdieu's more general theory of the forms of capital and their transubstantiations.

Shilling, Chris – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
Pierre Bourdieu's writings provide us with a powerful vision of corporeal sociology (an approach towards human relationships and identities that has at its centre the socially shaped embodied subject), and an understanding of the body as a form of physical capital. Despite his protestations to the contrary, however, a reproductionist bias pervades…

Dillabough, Jo-Anne – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
This paper seeks to outline and evaluate Pierre Bourdieu's work as it has appeared most recently in feminist studies and the field of gender and education. In particular, it suggests ways in which Bourdieu's theoretical insights could be seen to more effectively contribute to cutting edge debates in both social theory and feminist thought…

Hodkinson, Phil; Sparkes, Andrew C. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 1997

Presents a new model that avoids the pitfalls of social determinism and views young people as completely free…
