Subject: [BOU:] l'affaire du foulard

Is anyone following the "controversy" created around Islamic veiling in 
France? I was wondering whether any scholar from the "Acts of Research" 
circle wrote on this. I know that part of the French socialist left is 
defending young Muslim women on this, and some other socialists are with 
hard-core laicists. The common discourse among the academic opposition 
appears to be multiculturalism and politics of recognition, but I was 
curious whether students of Bourdieu took a different stance.

happy new year to all,
