This resource is aimed at people who are relatively new to educational research and new to the work of Pierre Bourdieu.  It introduces some of the important concepts that are developed in Bourdieu’s work and suggests, with examples, how these can apply in educational research.  It should help the new educational researcher decide whether or not there is something here for them to pursue further.
