Picturing Algeria: Pierre Bourdieu’s sociology and ethnography using visual methods 

Professor Franz Schultheis, a German sociologist working at University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, will be giving a presentation at the University of Waikato’s Faculty of Education.

The session will be of interest to those using Bourdieu’s work or visual methods, and to ethnographers and sociologists alike. Franz’ talk will include Bourdieu’s oeuvre, for instance on his photographic/visual sociology, and draw on his new co-authored book with Calhoun and Frisinghelli: Picturing Algeria

The presentation will be followed by an informal session discussing some of Bourdieu’s work that has not been translated into English as well as topics of interest from the audience. 

Franz worked with Pierre Bourdieu for nearly twenty years, presents workshops on Bourdieu’s visual sociology and is currently President of the Pierre Bourdieu Foundation.
