Dear Colleagues,

i would like to draw your attention to the conference
"Empirical Investigations of the Social Space" which
will take place in Bonn, Germany (12-14.10, 2015).

Call for Papers



Empirical Investigation of Social Space II

The objective of this international conference is to bring
together social scientists interested in both traditional
and modern methods for the construction of social space,
in line with the work of Pierre Bourdieu. This event
follows the spirit of a conference organized by Henry
Rouanet (1931-2008), Brigitte Le Roux, and Jörg Blasius
with Bourdieu’s participation, in Cologne, Germany, in
1998.

The conference will take place at the University of Bonn,
Germany, from
  
October 12th-14th, 2015

A dozen years after his passing, Pierre Bourdieu has
emerged as the sole twentieth-century sociologist who has
entered the canon of social sciences. His impact is
evidenced not only by the fact that he is the most quoted
sociologist of our times: his work is cited, deployed, and
elaborated across the disciplines that make up the social
sciences and the humanities, as well as in the arts and
many professional disciplines (architecture, business,
nursing, accounting and forestry, for example). Scientists
engage his central concepts, such as “capital”, “field”,
“social space”, “habitus” and “symbolic power”. They also
challenge and extend his empirical findings, for example
those regarding the patterning of fields or the
correspondences of lifestyles and social classes.

A core methodological element of Bourdieu’s relationalism
lies in geometric data analysis (analyse des données),
with its underlying philosophy that, as stated by the
mathematician Jean-Paul Benzécri, “the model should follow
the data and not the reverse.”

The purpose of this conference is to explicate and extend
Bourdieu’s relationalism in social analysis by elaborating
his core concepts and amplifying the methodological
precepts and techniques of their deployment. Special
attention will be paid to the ways in which his
habitus/field theory might be extended. Themes of the
conference include (but are not limited to):


· Formal construction and empirical observation of
habitus
· The formation, accumulation, differentiation of
 and conversion between different forms of capital
· The theory and methodology for the construction of
“social spaces”
· The relation between various “fields” and “the field
of power”
· Mechanisms of production and deployment of symbolic
capital
· Concepts of causality in geometric data analysis
· What benefits do modern variants of geometric data
analysis have for a Bourdieusian approach to social
phenomena
· Other methods for elaborating, extending and testing
Bourdieu’s theories, such as network analysis, content
analysis, or discourse analysis; regression analysis,
panel analysis, latent class analysis in the framework of
geometric data analysis
· We also call for contributions regarding
 particular applications of Bourdieu’s methodology to
traditional and new areas of research, such as the
analysis of institutional, international and transnational
fields, the workings of hybrid habitus, the variants of
symbolic power, etc.

Deadline for abstract submission: 1st of June, 2015,
notification of acceptance of conference paper: 29th of
June, 2015
