Noel Mejia SOCI 131 October 29, 2009 Messner Key concepts: Field- “spaces of objective relations that are the site of a logic and a necessity that are specific and irreducible to those that regulate other fields.” (Messner, 459) Habitus- “consists of a set of historical relations “deposited” within individual bodies in the form of mental and corporeal schemata of perception, appreciation and action” (Messner, 459) Discussion questions: On page 427, Messner states that “race and gender biases on the part of students…tended to place faculty of color and/or women faculty at a disadvantage.” What is this disadvantage? The disadvantage is that these gender and racial groups tend to sound bias when teaching about a subject which they are somehow related to (a woman instructor teaching gender relations, and an instructor of color teaching race relations). This characteristic of these minorities makes their teachings seem subjective which is something that is not perceived by students towards white male professors.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
