Abstract: This working paper has two main challenges: a) resume two contemporary theories to b) glimpse new developments from their integration. First, we resume the figurational theory proposed by the German sociologist Norbert Elias trying to highlight how disruptive and innovative his ideas are. Second, we resume the developments of the (social) network studies. Third, we seek to link both theories so they aid each other achieving new devel-opments. We illustrate the last step trying to convert part of Elias’ arguments in Mozart, Zur Soziologie eines Genies in a network. The expected outcome is on the one hand, Eli-as’ figurational theory gain applications with calculus and visualization elements from the network studies. On the other hand, the social network studies gain theoretical robustness with Elias’ theory.

Abstract: What is “theory” in sociology? The answer requires looking at different levels of theory. At the most abstract level, where issues related to epistemology, ontology, axiology, teleology and validity come into play it is very hard to separate Theory from Methodology. The “epistemological others” that can be differentiated from various forms of “Positivism” (Steinmetz 2005a) include grounded theory. It is not Grand Theory or Abstracted Empricism (Mills 1959). In this essay I explore some of the issues related to grounded theory as a sociological theory and grounded theory in general. I discuss such topics as: Grounded Theory as a Methodology or Logic of Method (GTM and Grounded Theory as a set of tools and techniques or “methods” in the narrower sense (GT). What is original in this essay is the attempt to link discussions of grounded theory to a broader literature on sociological theory. Often “methods” refers to techniques. Some regard grounded theory as just another technique for doing qualitative research. But Theory-in-general (Tg) and Methodology-in-general (Mg) are closely intertwined. The Methodenstreit in Europe circa the 1890s involved much more than a struggle over techniques for carrying out social science research. It went to the heart of the matter, especially the literature on: (1.) idiographic description (“thick description”), (2.) nomological laws (and law-like “realist” generalizations), and (3.) ideal types, considered not only in isolation but as components of Ideal Type Models (ITMs). Is it possible to have a realist theory (as in Critical Realism) if that theory is not nomothetic for all of the relevant “universe” (e.g. the last five thousand or more years of human history)? Are generalizations that emerge from grounded theory research “realist” or “idealist”?

Abstract: People hold certain expectations of gifted youth when they hear that they are “gifted”. What happens when these expectations, the expectations that align with the privileged gifted elite, are put upon marginalized gifted youth? The social and emotional problems often faced by the gifted may be exacerbated in gifted youth who are marginalized. In a system that is set up to reward gifted youth with elitism, the voices of gifted youth who are marginalized offered insight into the injustices experienced in an inner-city public high school. A thematic analysis of the case study interview data illuminated the possibility of social identity theory and identity theory intersecting in order for these gifted youth to form an identity that “is between the lines” because of the conflicting expectations of their peers, teachers, families, community, and advocates.
