Accordingly, it is perhaps a simple task to identify other fields (other social arenas) that house, for example, lifestyle choices, gender, politics and employment. Similarly, Allen (2011), Calhoun (1995) and Wacquant (2004) each illustrate the habitus within the field of sport; whereas Haines et al. (2009) discuss substance use within the field of female adolescence. Such variation of field relates to the heterogeneous construction of society that equally reflects the transposable nature of habitus (Bourdieu 1977) in all of which field becomes ‘the product and producer of habitus’ (Jenkins 2002: 84).
Crossley (2001) comments that each mode of capital listed above also develop social trajectories as they each provide resources within a given context (field). This is due to the shared cultural value assigned to such ‘wealth’ in which individuals strive to maximise their various forms of capital in order to improve their life chances (Postone et al. 1993). ’s (2009) illustration of cultural capital, identifies a range of smoking-related behaviours and beliefs that maximise social mobility in the context of tobacco use by adolescent females.
To elaborate this definition, and as Crossley (2001) notes, ‘field’ principally provides context to habitus and its associative dispositions. Accordingly, it is perhaps a simple task to identify other fields (other social arenas) that house, for example, lifestyle choices, gender, politics and employment. Similarly, Allen (2011), Calhoun (1995) and Wacquant (2004) each illustrate the habitus within the field of sport; whereas Haines et al.
