Mark Jamieson will discuss how Pierre Bourdieu’s concepts of symbolic capital and symbolic violence might be enhanced through an exploration of what he calls ‘symbolic currencies’ in order to make sense of mechanisms of culture change. He will analyse the habitus inhabited by black teenagers involved in Rhythm and Blues vocal groups (later known as ‘doo wop’ groups) in 1950s New York.
