Learning Research Habitus: Tribes and Territories in the Field of Educational Administration

This study examines the research habitus that has engendered in the higher education graduate level research and tries to open up new avenues of inquiry into the study of educational administration. In this respect, the present study traces two-tier approach to the qualitative and quantitative research conducted in the field of educational administration: one is the identification and examination of micro research units generated in the graduate level research, second is an analysis of the key themes in those units and characterize the research discourses relying on Bourdieu’s concepts of field and habitus. In this context, the major research questions of this study are: 1- What are the “micro research units” and “key themes” in the field of educational administration in Turkey? 2- What are the characteristics of the emerging "research habitus" relying on the scholarly work within the field of educational administration? In line with the arguments, the study focuses on the research literature on educational administration through discourse analysis method and a theoretical framework that relies on the concepts Pierre Bourdieu’s field and habitus.
