    School Beyond Stratification: Internal Goods, Alienation, and an Expanded Sociology of Education.Jeffrey Guhin & Joseph Klett - 2022 - Theory and Society 51 (3):371-398.
    Sociologists of education often emphasize goods that result from a practice rather than goods intrinsic to a practice. The authors draw from John Dewey and Alasdair MacIntyre to describe how the same practice can be understood as producing “skills” that center external goods or as producing habits or virtues, both of which center internal goods. The authors situate these concepts within sociology of education’s stratification paradigm and a renewed interest in the concept of alienation, contrasting the concepts of skills, habits, (...)

    Economics as Symbolic Capital: The Consecration of Elite Business Schools.Mikael Holmqvist - 2022 - Theory and Society 51 (3):435-455.
    Ever since the first elite business schools were founded in Europe and the United States during the late 1800s and early 1900s, they have enjoyed an intimate relationship with economics. Despite some notable analyses of economics’ importance for the successful institutionalization of business schools, an understanding of the relation between economics and elite business schools requires further development. As such, this paper focuses on ‘economics as symbolic capital’ for the consecration of business schools as elite settings, with particular emphasis on (...)

  3. Symbolic Revolutions. Mobilizing a Neglected Bourdieusian Concept for Historical Sociology.Martin Petzke - 2022 - Theory and Society 51 (3):487-510.
    The article builds on a recent literature that has sought to underscore the relevance of Bourdieu’s field theory for historical-sociological analysis. It draws attention to symbolic revolutions, a concept that has been given short shrift in this literature and even in Bourdieu’s own expositions of his field-theoretical apparatus. The article argues that symbolic revolutions denote a universal mechanism of field-internal change which extends and complements a conceptual battery of mostly structural universals of fields. In a synoptic reading of Bourdieu’s field-theoretical (...)

  10. Religious Change in Orthodox-Majority Eastern Europe: From Nation-State to Global-Market.François Gauthier - 2022 - Theory and Society 51 (2):177-210.
    This article mobilises an analytical framework developed by the author in a series of solo and joint publications according to which religion has shifted from a Nation-State to a Global-Market regime, which it applies to the case of Eastern European Orthodox majority countries, including Russia, in modern times. Bringing together a large amount of research in a synthetic objective, it first examines how religion in Eastern Europe was nationalised and statised from the end of the eighteenth to the twentieth century.

    Citizenship is usually seen as a product of modern nation-states, or of other political entities which possess institutional infrastructures and political systems capable of producing a coherent framework that defines the relationship between that system and its members. In this paper, we show that an early system of modern citizenship was created in the absence of a formal state, notably by the cultural elite of a stateless nation. The Polish case illustrates that an elite may become a dominant class in (...)

    Commons and the Nature of Modernity: Towards a Cosmopolitical View on Craft Guilds.Bert De Munck - 2022 - Theory and Society 51 (1):91-116.
    This paper argues that historical research on late medieval and early modern craft guilds fails to escape teleological and anachronistic views, including when they are addressed as commons or ‘institutions for collective action’. These present-day conceptual lenses do not only create idealized views on guilds, but also of the contexts in which they operated, especially the state and the market. This is especially the case with neo-institutional views on the commons, which fall back on a transhistorical rational actor, who can (...)

  19. The Paradox of Victory: Social Movement Fields, Adverse Outcomes, and Social Movement Success.Bert Useem & Jack A. Goldstone - 2022 - Theory and Society 51 (1):31-60.
    Recent work on social movement fields has expanded our view of the dynamics of social movements; it should also expand our thinking about social movement success. Such a broader view reveals a paradox: social movements often snatch defeat from the jaws of victory by narrowly targeting authorities with their actions instead of targeting the broader social movement field. Negative impacts from the wider social movement field can then reverse or overshadow initial victories. We distinguish between a social movement’s victory over (...)
