10J Raising Kids the Right Way? the Interplay of Taste and Morality in Parents’ Identity Projects For Their Children

This paper investigates the interplay between morality and taste in kids’ socialization. Through interviews with immigrant families in Canada, we discuss how parents envision their kids’ identity projects and how they shape their habitus with relevant capital. We show how inter-generational transfer of taste practices serve to produce moral citizens.
