They also provide a means of responding to criticisms of conventional ethnography, which claim that it fails to study the constraints operating on research subjects (Hammersley, 1992). Because of the possibilities which cultural capital, field and habitus offer for ‘reading off’ structure from people’s actions and, concomitantly, their ability to integrate macro and micro processes, they facilitate a broad focus on the macro relations between education and inequality, while simultaneously allowing for close attention to the micro details of mothering practices.

Lareau, 1992:220) In contrast, the middle-class parents had both cultural and social capital which they utilized on their children’s behalf. It is in relation to middle-class parents that Lareau elaborates Bourdieu’s original thesis. She describes a process in which middle-class families’ cultural capital is activated in interaction with external organizations, such as the school. In developing the concept of cultural capital to embrace the dynamic function of generating social profits, Lareau extends Bourdieu’s theory to cover the meaningful practice of social actors in their cultural context.

Paradoxically, because it is particularly for working-class women that the home is a site of work in as much as they lack middle-class possibilities of employing domestic labour, Lareau identifies the working-class home as operating with a separation of home and work as discrete spheres. In contrast, she argues that the middle-classes have a vision of work as a diffuse, round-the-clock experience, taking place at home and at the work place (Lareau, 1989:172).
