AbstractThis article provides a portrait of the reception of Pierre Bourdieu in Canada. We start by bringing forward the fact that Canada is primarily an English-speaking country, but that the existence of the French-speaking province of Québec has permitted Bourdieu to establish a network of collaborators, notably a number of students who had studied with him in Paris. By all evidence, this interpersonal network has contributed to the diffusion of his ideas within Canada has a whole. However, we note from our data that Bourdieu’s reception within the Canadian scholarly community is similar to that of other English-speaking countries, such as the United Kingdom.
