mediated resources are deployed in negotiating co-presence relationally between different significant locations, between different and sometimes competing expectations of dwelling-in-place, and in thinking about possible futures, here, there or elsewhere. While alert to the reductionist problems of ‘groupism’ (Brubaker, 2004), we conducted this research in relation to nationally organized participants, as questions of language and particular media cultures are central to, but do not define, network capital. Moreover, mobility, status and future possibility are heavily

French community rejection and projection

observing habitus through the prism of habits, it is thus possible to gain a more nuanced understanding of home as played out through participants’ actions within, and reactions to, the diasporic field. To draw a connection with the objectivised habitats observed in Chapter 2 , I concentrate on habits fundamental to the daily lives and corporeal experiences of my research participants, related to eating, drinking and health. As Leonard asserts, ‘[c]ombining the subjective with a materialist turn allows a focus on the interplay of identity with nation, race, gender and

British DIY punk as a form of cultural resistance
Michelle Liptrot

the Do-it-Yourself (DIY) self-production ethic of 1970s punk, whereby participants followed in the DIY tradition of jazz, skiffle and the sixties counter-culture to produce their own music, visual style and media (in the form of fanzines).7 Another important aspect of the DIY ethic in punk was that bands were (and remain) audience members, underlining punk’s participatory nature and conveying a sense of egalitarianism. This DIY ethic was developed during the 1980s by British anarcho and American hardcore punk, both of which placed greater emphasis on DIY activities

as a space corresponds to the space it inhabits. Moreover, dance has a continuous element within it even when it is rapturous and disturbing. Dance as a world inscribes upon the bodies of its participants –​audience members and spectators alike –​and changes their embodied spatiality after they leave the theatre. Martin argues that taking dance seriously aids us in going beyond the despair of an arrested present towards thinking about an enriched social life. Further, ‘if one grants that along with dance, politics cannot have a solitary form or a unitary object, if

the racialised social system but is in fact a key area of social space for the reproduction of the racial hierarchy. In this line of thought, many of my participants pointed out that while Blackness is often excluded in middle-class cultural forms, when Blackness is present, it is often represented in stereotypical ways, such as through the lens of urban or underclass culture, knife crime, drug delinquency, and so on. For instance, I went to the Roy Williams theatre play Soul at Hackney Empire, about the life and death of Marvin Gaye. The play was followed by a

Windows onto intimate London habitats and homemaking across cultures

London French in the Introduction, I return here to the material lifeworlds of my respondents and explore individualised processes of emplacement (Ryan and Mulholland, 2015 ; Ryan, 2018 ; Wessendorf and Phillimore, 2018 ) and homemaking (Walsh, 2006 ; Levin, 2016 ) in London. Subdividing Bourdieu’s original habitus concept into a triad composed of habitat, habituation and habits, the following three chapters, broadly speaking, examine participants’ material homes, attitudinal change and evolving practices respectively. In this chapter, I therefore delve into the

medical care; and others, in an attempt to protect their own emotional wellbeing, avoided hearing more than what they perceived was absolutely necessary for medical decision-making. Inevitably, the heaviness of what my participants reported on touched the world of human emotions. Hearing patient stories, particularly the way they framed them, provided insight. Their stories were statements on the brutality

scientist, the notion of participant observation offers a fruitful metaphor to describe those roles. Conflict as a breakdown of shared reality Conflicts are characterised by a breakdown of shared reality. The individual makes his or her world through typifications, through interpretations. This does not, however, imply solipsism: typifications are produced and distributed in and

participant observer to join with them in their daily lives’. Nonetheless, a broad toolkit of participatory techniques has been developed, used either as stand-alone methodologies or in addition to more traditional methods, such as questionnaires and interviews. However, the methods employed must suit the specific topic that one wishes to investigate and be meaningful to research participants, regardless of

(SAS2), Carleton University (Ottawa) and the International Development Research Centre of Canada (IDRC) got involved. Despite the decentralization of forest management that started in Bolivia in the 1990s, forest participants failed to properly consolidate their attributions, while many of the communities and other social groups who had been excluded in previous forest regimes gained access to forest transition and profitable logging. Among the reasons for this were the heavy reliance on international funding, lack of technical capacity, limited access to information
