Lectures in Anthropology 2018-2019 - Ghassan Hage - the 17 September 2018

Speaker : Ghassan Hage (University of Melbourne)

Title: Illusio: on the analytic deployment of a Bourdieu-ian concept.

Abstract:

In this talk I investigate and compare a number of analytic/ethnographic moments where I found myself deploying Bourdieu’s concept of illusio. I want to particularly highlight the rich potentiality of the concept which allowed me to extend its usage far beyond what Bourdieu made of it. In doing so I want to also exemplify how sometimes rushing into ‘critique’ can actually impoverish analysis by shutting down the possibility of working with the rich potentiality of concepts.
