I may be able to help ?
For those of you, that read swedish, Donald Broadys thesis, called
"Sociologi och epistimologi", contains a chapter on the correspondence
analysis of Bourdieu. He has also published (in a very small number) a
thing called "Jean-Paul Benzecri och korrespondensanalysen", also in
swedish. I haven't read either - yet - but plan to do so, as part of a
project on Bourdieu and objectivism. Both are published from HLS f"orlag
in Stockholm.
The thesis, btw, revolves around Bourdieu and french epistemology, and is
IMHO well worth reading - at least the part I've read so far !
