Subject: measuring negative/positive cultural capital...


Dear Listserve members,

It seems that when considering cultural capital it
is always viewed in a positive stance (it enables) but is there such a
thing as negative cultural capital (it disenables).

Another difficult question would be how a researcher measure either
capital?

Can you think of any negative cultural capital that might disenable
academic attainment?  (((Would a kinesthetic learner (one who learns by a
hands-on approach) possess a negative cultural capital as a result of this
habitus?)))

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Gavin Young
