The joint research interests of the two projects are how professional interventions addressing “the immigrant” have appeared, been legitimized and been transformed, and how professionals and their practices have related to the state and acted on its behalf. In essence, what the projects seek to understand is two-fold. First, they address the boundary work of the professionals in defining both professional work and “the immigrant”. The aim is to capture the way in which professionals symbolically participate in (re)identifying and (re)problematizing “the immigrant”. The second aim is to understand the state’s complex work of group-making and how it targets “the immigrant”, continually re-constructing the politics of belonging in the state-crafting activities of professional intervention.
This research endeavor calls for a sociological theoretical framework, and in this connection we have found help in Bourdieu’s and Wacquant’s concept of state as a bureaucratic field and their concept of state-crafting. The aim of this article, then, is to show how it is possible to use Bourdieu’s and Wacquant’s sociological concept of state in historical research and to put it to work empirically.
