Abstract

Este artigo discute até que ponto as posições de classe na Grã-Bretanha contemporânea foram herdadas dos pais e que tipo de escolhas em termos conjugais (e seus efeitos) homens e mulheres fazem em posições sociais diferentes. De modo inovador, o artigo investiga os diferentes ativos herdados de pais e mães por filhos e filhas, visando a um exame refinado dos efeitos de gênero, ainda não presente na literatura. Discriminam-se também as escolhas conjugais de homens e mulheres. Essas explorações se apoiam no material empírico desenvolvido para o estudo britânico Capital Cultural e Exclusão Social (CCSE, na sigla em inglês), inspirado pelo trabalho de Pierre Bourdieu sobre capitais e habitus na definição das posições dos indivíduos nas classes sociais. O artigo indica que o gênero, uma ativo mal compreendido por Bourdieu, afeta a posição de classe de formas sutis e complexas, sendo muito significativo em certos aspectos.

The paper discusses the extent to which class position in contemporary Britain has been inherited from parents, and the kinds of choices of partners (and their effects) women and men in different social positions make. It innovatively investigates the different assets originating from fathers and mothers, upon sons and daughters, a refined examination of the effects of gender, not attended to in the existing literature. It also differentiates the elective partnership of men and women. This exploration draws from empirical material developed for the British study Cultural Capital and Social Exclusion (CCSE), engaging with the work of Pierre Bourdieu about capital, assets and habitus for the position of individuals in social classes. The paper indicates that gender, a misrecognised asset in Bourdieu, affects class position in subtle and complex ways, being very significant in some aspects.
