Additional Information: This paper is an innovative discussion of one of the fundamental theoretical aspects of Bourdieu's work: the fact that it was grounded in an ethnographic epistemology. On the basis of features of Bourdieu's work and of some of his own claims to that effect, habitus is seen as a primarily ethnographic concept. This insight is applied to empirical material from interviews with African asylum seekers, where we see how the interviewer's conversational routines, notably his questions are guided by a 'proleptic' orientation: a reflex of professional habitus.
