1. Büger, Christian. "Forget Bourdieu!

Abstract: Bourdieu?s social theory has become a new reference point in IR theory. Initially only used in New European Security Theory (NEST), Bourdieus concepts of capital, field and practice is increasingly adopted to think other transnational spaces then the field of security. Bourdieu?s concepts certainly have opened new intellectual space to think of international relations differently ? and critically. The field concept has provided an alternative metaphor to the container of the nation state. Capital has proved to be useful concept to acknowledge that there is more then one face of power ? seven, if you want. The concept of practice in its discursive and non-discursive expressions has finally made it to be a concept of analytical worth in the IR discourse, and Bourdieu might help to return practice to the linguistic turn ? to paraphrase Iver Neumann. Although, most likely Bourdieu will face Habermas? fate ? to be disciplined in the disciplinary canon (which will be proved when we see the first ?Bourdieu inspired? article in International Organizations), this paper engages with a non-disciplinary, direct critique of Bourdieu?s theory in the first place. In discussing the telling critique expressed by Bruno Latour, I will question if Bourdieu?s conceptual tools will be useful in future to think transnational spaces and a ?world society?.The paper will proceed in three steps. First, I will discuss Latour?s critique on Bourdieus use of the economic metaphor, which indicates the importance to find a balance between Bourdieus and Foucaults version of power and authority ? of having power and of being in power. From this perspective it becomes clear that Bourdieus solution for the agency-structure dilemma (the field) is problematic. Next, I will ask in what way the Bourdieuan problem has become an IR problem. In reviewing some of the ?Bourdieu-inspired? analyses of transnational spaces in IR, I will investigate in what way scholars have already fallen in the ?field trap?. As the review will reveal, (most) scholars have acknowledged the problem, and have, innovatively, added a disciplinary shot of Foucault to their studies. However, the risks still prevail and not all of the solutions are convincing. Thus, I will, thirdly, sketch an alternative of studying transnational spaces by relying on what has been called the sociology of translation. In introducing the principles and vocabulary of this school of thought, and discussing some of the parallels to existing ?relational? accounts in IR, I argue that this basic vocabulary not only prevents us from falling in the ?field trap?, but can guide research of a new type. In resisting the disciplinary obligation that every good paper needs at least an empirical case study, I will conclude by a summary of the argument and by sketching elements of an international sociology of translation. In sum, the paper questions a ?new fashion? of the disciplinary sociological turn in adding and translating some non-disciplinary thoughts.

Abstract: This exposition analyzes lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer subculture(s) in terms of the reproduction of gendered hierarchies and stratification that mirrors the dominant, heteronormative Western culture. It is found in literature pertaining to identitiy politics and the body politic which LGBTQ subcultures utilize in attempts to resist dominant culture, hierarchies that reproduce and cater to heteronormatives are found pervasive. Utilizing the theories of Pierre Bourdieu, reproduction of gendered stratification is found in habitus and fields through cultural restraints, practices as a means of capital, ownership of LGBTQ identities as specialization, and the marketing of the Queer as a rational, money-making means.

Abstract: This essay refers to Pierre Bourdieu’s early writing on Algeria to excavate Bourdieu’s theory of colonial domination. Contrary to received understandings, Bourdieu did in fact offer a theory of colonialism. The theory involves an understanding of colonialism as a racialized system of domination, backed by force, which restructures social relations and creates hybrid cultures. This theory also carries insights on anticolonial revolution, the limits of colonial reform, and the prospects of postcolonial liberation. Bourdieu’s early thinking on colonialism drew upon but extended French colonial studies of the time. It also contains the seeds of his own later concepts like habitus, field, and reflexive sociology while prefiguring trends in more recent colonial and postcolonial studies.
