Pierre Bourdieu/Loïc Wacquant:
An Invitation to Reflexive Sociology
(English > Ukrainian)

My scientific interests are in the fields of poverty, urban marginality, class structure and stratification in post-soviet societies, Marxist and Bourdieusian sociological approaches and qualitative research methods. This is the reason why I have chosen to translate the book An Invitation to Reflexive Sociology by Pierre Bourdieu and Loïc Wacquant into Ukrainian during my stay at the IWM. The French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu has produced one of the most influential bodies of social theory in the post-war era. In this book he offers a systematic overview of his work. A translation will make Bourdieu’s thematic and methodological principles accessible to both Ukrainian students as well as advanced scholars.
