阐述和测量线上社会资本的两个维度

【阐述和测量线上社会资本的两个维度】传播学的研究者也一直在努力探讨社会资本的概念和测量。研究者本人认为社会资本的概念和测量方法之间的联系并不总是很清楚,并且对社会资本的操作化在实证研究中也不统一。作者还指出对社会资本的测量可以沿着两个维度:一个静态-动态的连续和一个非正式-正式的路径,这两个维度都在很大程度被忽视。其实这也是作者本人对其他研究者,包括Bourdieu和Coleman所阐释的社会资本理论的重新审视,同时也是在提醒我们应重新考虑传播的作用和功能如何推动社会资本。

原文标题:Explicating and Measuring Social Relationships in Social Capital Research
原文作者:Mami Kikuchi,Cynthia-Lou Coleman

The authors examine how the construct social capital is explicated and measured by communication scholars in contemporary research and argue that linkages between concepts and measures are not always clear and operationalizations of social capital are far from uniform in empirical studies. The authors also note that the measures of social capital fall along 2 dimensions: a static–dynamic continuum and an informal–formal path, which are largely ignored. The authors challenge communication scholars to reexamine the theoretical underpinnings of social capital research articulated by Pierre Bourdieu and James S. Coleman and to reconsider how the role and functions of communication might drive social capital.
