Allen, Louisa – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2005
The notion of "the school" as a set of institutional processes and practices that shape the possibilities of educational research forms the focus of this article.

Brown, Tony; England, Janice – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004

Because access to new technologies is unequally distributed, there has been considerable debate about the growing gap between the so-called information-rich and information-poor.

Menchik, Daniel A. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004

Reay, Diane – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
The concept of habitus lies at the heart of Bourdieu's theoretical framework. It is a complex concept that takes many shapes and forms in Bourdieu's own writing, even more so in the wider sociological work of other academics. In the first part of this paper I develop an understanding of habitus, based on Bourdieu's many writings on the concept,…

Shilling, Chris – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2004
Pierre Bourdieu's writings provide us with a powerful vision of corporeal sociology (an approach towards human relationships and identities that has at its centre the socially shaped embodied subject), and an understanding of the body as a form of physical capital. Despite his protestations to the contrary, however, a reproductionist bias pervades…
