Professor David Swartz’s Symbolic Power, Politics, and Intellectuals: The Political Sociology of Pierre Bourdieu is the co-winner of the American Sociological Association’s 2014 History of Sociology Section Distinguished Scholarly Publication Award.
This award “honors sociologists who have made significant contributions to the history of sociology by writing books or articles on the ‘cutting edge’ of sociological inquiry.”  In his notice of the award, Chair Elect of the History of Sociology Section Neil Gross quoted the award committee in describing Symbolic Power as showing “clearly how much Bourdieu has ‘to give to a sociology of politics and a political sociology’–and how central politics was in Bourdieu’s intellectual biography.”
Symbolic Power shares this award with Marcel Fournier’s Emile Durkheim: A Biography.
Professor David Swartz gave a talk April 12 at New York University on his recent book Symbolic Power, Politics, and Intellectuals: The Political Sociology of Pierre Bourdieu. The talk was sponsored by the NYU Department of Media, Culture and Communication and organized by Rodney Benson and Steven Lukes.
On Friday, September 27th, the Society, Politics and Culture Workshop hosted a Book Discussion and Launch Party celebrating the publication of Professor David Swartz’s “Symbolic Power, Politics and Intellectuals: The Political Sociology of Pierre Bourdieu.” (University of Chicago Press, 2013)
The celebration featured a panel discussion of the book with Bart Bonikowski of Harvard University, Neil Gross of the University of British Columbia and the Institute for Public Knowledge, and the book’s author, David Swartz. The book discussion was immediately followed by a reception.
