Success and Reproduction: A Look at Traditional Success and Nontraditional Success Via Bourdieu’s Theory of Cultural Reproduction
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this project is to illustrate how the concept of success has been defined traditionally through my experience growing up in America, how the concept of success has been altered through my summer internship experience in 2012, and, finally, how it fits into the theory of cultural reproduction. Bourdieu and Passeron’s theory of cultural reproduction states that through the force of symbolic violence, an invisible force with great power, the upper class is reproduced creating the social stratification generally accepted by society. However, they do not provide an insight on how working class individuals choose to behave under the enforcement of the values and ideals of the upper class. I plan to expand on Bourdieu and Passeron’s acknowledgements by showing that the motivation of the working class students to gain the appropriate capital is more powerful than the symbolic violence that previously kept them from attempting to continue school.
