Research for making the familiar strange and the strange familiar

THE USE OF BOURDIEU IN RESEARCHING SPORT

11 September 2014

This presentation will use a framework provided by Bourdieu’s (1977) analytical concepts of habitus and capital. I will draw firstly on my doctorate experience and then on the proposed research for the ARC project "Identifying pedagogical factors enabling success in elite-level team sport for Indigenous Australians: lessons for closing the gap".

Bourdieu had a keen interest in sport and used sporting analogies to explain his work. Bourdieu’s analytical concepts have been taken up in the sociological research of sport (Shilling, 2003; Tomlinson, 2004; Wacquant, 1995a, 1995b). Bourdieu made a connection to sport generally and more specifically to explain his work and used the term ‘le sens pratique’ to describe how people develop a natural feel for expert participation in sport (Bourdieu & Wacquant, 1992, p. 129). The presentation will assist researchers with a practical way to use Bourdieu’s concepts.
