about this item
The book is an investigation of the cultural work involved in the social process of achieving and maintaining legitimacy as a not-for-profit arts or media organization in the twenty-first century. Within this work, Larsen advances a cultural approach to studying organizational legitimacy, emanating from within cultural sociology. More specifically, he analyzes the legitimation work done in the public service broadcasters in Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden, and Denmark), the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet, the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.
