Legitimation Code Theory

Knowledge-Building in Research and Practice

Series Editor:

Legitimation Code Theory (LCT) first emerged as a framework for the study of knowledge and education and is now being used to analyse a growing range of different practices. It builds on the ideas of Bernstein and Bourdieu and integrates insights from diverse fields including linguistics, literary criticism, physics and anthropology. Taking an innovative multidisciplinary approach, this series presents work that uses LCT to explore and generate knowledge-building in education. The books focus on everything from cutting-edge developments in theory to new forms of educational practice, and spring from a wide range of disciplines – from physics to ballet, and dentistry to design.
