PhD Topic

Cultural capital, stratification and educational practices in the Dominican Republic

Third year of study

Brief Description of PhD topic

My research is a study of Pierre Bourdieu's concept of cultural capital applied to the context of education in the Dominican Republic. I examine the ways in which the theory can be operationalized in a non-western/advanced economy society, as well as the elements that parents, schools and students consider to be culturally relevant practices, attitudes and strategies for their children's advancement and academic achievement. Then I attempt to describe how social class mediates in the practices and investments made by families of disparate socioeconomic strata.
