Workshop with Mercator Fellow Vitor Sèrgio Ferreira “Life stories and sociological portraits”
20 July, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
The workshop is only for members of the research training group. Mercator Fellow Vitor Sèrgio Ferreira (University of Lisbon) will focuse the following topic:
Recently, Bourdieu’s sociological approach has been renewed in a critical way by Bernard Lahire to Bourdieu’s approach. The intention of the seminar is to make an incursion into Lahire’s criticism of Bourdieu to introduce the methodology of sociological portraits as an important resource for research on an individual scale and in the biographical tradition. After presenting the basic properties attributed to individual dispositions (variability, genesis, transferability, dichotomy and contextuality), the potentialities of sociological portraits for the purposes of social science research are underlined.
