***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear list members, I have a student who is writing his master thesis about the habitus of foreign postgraduate students. We are now looking for a possibility to combine a qualitative study on the habitus construct with the analysis of ego-centered networks of the interviewees. Does anyone on the list know about relevant literature beyond the correlation between the habitus in terms of Pierre Bourdieu and the structure of ego-centered networks. Are there any indices that the disposition of habitus implies the building of specific ego-centered networks? Our hypothesis is, that the foreign postgraduate students have ego-centered networks, which are not necessarily connected with a certain place. (in German: "Enträumlichung der sozialen Gemeinschaft"). Many thanks to all in advance for any refrences. We will compile the responses and send them back to the list.
