The workshop aims to explore Pierre Bourdieu’s proposition in Pascalian Meditations that sociology and psychology should combine their efforts to analyse the genesis of investment in a field of social relations – like the domestic space – where a complex process of socialization is initiated. In what ways can the psyche in the habitus be manifested and captured? How do sociological tools and psychoanalytical ones enable researchers to identify the workings of the habitus?
