Bourdieu and Affect : Towards a Theory of Affective Affinities, Hardback Book

Bourdieu and Affect : Towards a Theory of Affective Affinities Hardback

Description

Steven Threadgold's study represents the first comprehensive engagement of Pierre Bourdieu's influential sociology with affect theory. With empirical research and examples from sociology, it develops a theory of "Affective Affinities," deepening our understanding of how everyday moments contribute to the construction and remaking of social class and aspects of inequalities.

It identifies new ways to consider the strengths and weaknesses of Bourdieusian principles and their interaction with new developments in social theory. This is a stimulating read for students, researchers and academics across studies in youth, education, labour markets, pop culture, media, consumption and taste.
