Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are formed through my understandings of how Bourdieusian concepts of field, habitus, dispositions and misrecognition relate to the interactions between students and teachers in schools.

Specifically, these focus on how teachers' perceptions of students are affected by their understandings of social class.
