Sample text

In Chapter 2, Ciaran Burke reflects on the tendency for the concept of habitus to be the primary focus of research, relegating capital and field to secondary conceptual tools. In his chapter, he demonstrates the directive influence capitals have over individual and group trajectories. In a further unpacking of empirical findings on the role of class on graduate employment trajectories, Burke charts the socially mobilising effect access to particular capitals can provide. In addition, Burke illustrates the consequences when particular forms of capital are spent and the implications for future trajectories, now that a level of mobility has been experienced.

Field is often seen as merely the context or setting in which habitus and capital interact. While field provides an environment for both habitus and capital, it is not reliant on their patronage for legitimisation. Rather, field progresses along its own trajectory, often requiring groups and individuals to reconfigure their own actions in light of an altered field. This is captured nicely in Chapter 10 of this book as Ingram and Abrahams discuss the way in which a cleft-habitus can be reconciled during the process of social mobility despite individuals occupying multiple and incommensurate fields.
