about this item

Sociologists and art scholars introduce anglophone readers to some of the new literature on the sociology of art as inspired by the work of French sociologist and anthropologist Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002). Among their topics are the museum and the marketplace: the constitution of value in contemporary art, the issue of the artwork: a site under construction in Bourdieu's theory, on a contemporary principle of public classification: heritage conversion of cultural property, the work of the institution: the democratization of culture in light of the legacy of the Théâtre National Populaire, and in what way (or not) is Bourdieu useful to the sociology of literature.
