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 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 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.

Reviews

'Written by well-known and highly respected experts in the field, this is an important collection. It is for all those interested in Bourdieu's work. The essays demonstrate how Bourdieu's concepts can be made useful in ways that complicates them at the same time as they themselves open up new research possibility.' - Ghassan Hage, Professor of Anthropology and Social Theory, University of Melbourne, Australia 'This is an engaging and thought-provoking collection that thinks "with and against" Bourdieu. The chapters here both engage with and suggest new departures from Bourdieu's own work to produce important insights and to suggest new directions for a sociology of the twenty-first century.' - Steph Lawler, Reader in Sociology, Department of Sociology, University of York, UK
