***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Dear Marina, Your e-mail reached my e-mail account at a time when I had computer problems. I discover it now, much time later. While I have not particularly worked with the concept of habitus, I have on the other hand studied ego-networks of foreign students (Erasmus). I have examined among other questions wether there is consistency in the characteristics of the ego networks students had in their home country and in their new networks in the host country. I examined wether these distant quasi synchronic networks were articulated in a complementary way to eachother of if they had similar features - which would more correspond to your habitus hypothesis. I have written about it in: - A. de Federico and A. Ferrand (1998) « Comparison of network characteristics of distant quasi-synchronic personal friendship networks » at the conference Sunbelt XVIII and 5º European International Conference on Social Networks, Sitges, Spain, May 27-31, 1998. - A.de Federico (1997) L'amitié dans le programme ERASMUS: Une analyse de la création et durée des relations d'amitié des boursiers Erasmus à Lille. (Friendship in the ERASMUS program: An analysis of the dynamics of friendship relations of Erasmus students in Lille). Masters thesis, supervisor Prof. A. Ferrand. I can send you the papers if you wish and we can of course discuss about it over the e-mail.
