Overview

The work of Pierre Bourdieu, one of the most influential French intellectuals of the twentieth century, has had an enormous impact on research in fields as diverse as aesthetics, education, anthropology, and sociology. Pierre Bourdieu: Fieldwork in Art, Literature, and Culture is the first collection of essays to focus specifically on the contribution of Bourdieu's thought to the study of cultural production. Though Bourdieu's own work has illuminated diverse cultural phenomena, the essays in this volume extend to new cultural forms and to national situations outside France. Far from simply applying Bourdieu's concepts and theoretical tools to these new contexts, the essays in this volume consider both the possibility and limits of Bourdieu's sociology for the study of culture.

Editorial Reviews

Interchange
The book Pierre Bourdieu is useful to researchers who contemplate what really useful knowledge and work are in contemorary academe where social structures and cultural forms too often conform to the marketplace logic of late capitalism.
International Social Science Review
Intellectual historians, sociologists, anthropologists and anyone interested in the discipline of cultural studies will want to spend some time with this book.
Marshall Brown
This sparkling and unusually coherent collection of essays emphasizes the American reception and adaptation of Bourdieu's work. It shows how Bourdieu has been resisted and embraced and discusses how his terms and methods might be both used and modified by American academics. Theoretical reflections are productively complemented by empirical investigations of non-canonical and popular artistic expressions and by discussions of the position of women in Bourdieu's thought.
(London) Times Literary Supplement
Readers in different national contexts should use [this book] to reflect on the social factors affecting their responses to Bordieu's work.

    Excellent introduction to Bourdieu

    This book is excellent for any lay reader who is interested in philosophy, critical theory, or cultural studies, and wants to see what Bourdieu is all about and why he's so important. It might be more useful to start with the second half first to get a feel for how Bourdieu's models are used, and then go back to the first half to read the more theoretical material. But for someone who has wanted to know what the fuss was about but wasn't sure it was quite worth slogging through 'Outline of a Theory of Practice' or whatever, this is a great place to start.
