This article suggests that the SHAS movement should be analyzed as a ‘field’ as this term is understood in the theory developed by Pierre Bourdieu. I argue that the Bourdeauian framework serves as a theoretical superstructure within which to understand SHAS and build empirical research questions about it. This article opens with a short introduction to SHAS and a survey of the approaches that have been suggested to date in studying the movement. A short discussion of relevant aspects of Bourdieu's theory of fields follows. Then, moving to the crux of the matter, the primary components of SHAS as a field arising from a Bourdieuan analysis are presented.
