„Arbeit ist nur das, was Geld bringt“ Wandel der lokalen Ökonomie in Ameskar Fogani (Marokko) am Beispiel des Tourismus

J. Metzger

Abstract. This article discusses current transformations from nomadism to labor migration and tourism in the local economy in the Moroccan mountain village Ameskar Fogani. Using the concepts of field, habitus and symbolic capital of Bourdieu's "theory of practice", changes in economic practices are analyzed in relation to changes of (symbolic) meanings and perceptual categories. This perspective sheds light on the close interrelation of economic and cultural aspects of social change.
