"This collection of original, state-of-the-art essays by prominent international scholars covers the most important issues comprising the sociology of culture. Heightened recognition of the ways culture inflects politics and economics, social relations and personal identities has transformed scholarship in the social sciences and humanities." "The Blackwell Companion to the Sociology of Culture reflects on this "cultural turn" by providing a reference resource to all interested in the cultural structures and processes that animate contemporary life. The book includes such topics as art, science, religion, race, class, gender, collective memory, institutions, and citizenship."--Jacket
Front page economics by Gerald D Suttles( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
Poring over the articles generated by the crashes--as well as the people in them, the writers who wrote them, and the cartoons that ran alongside them--Suttles uncovers dramatic changes between the ways the first and second crashes were reported. In the intervening half-century, an entire new economic language had arisen and the practice of business journalism had been completely altered. Both of these transformations, Suttles demonstrates, allowed journalists to describe the 1987 crash in a vocabulary that was normal and familiar to readers, rendering it routine

Cultural sociology at the crossroads by Mark D Jacobs( Article )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Article examines two questions. First, what difference does it make when approaches developed in cultural sociology are applied more broadly? Conversely, what do such applications then imply for the further development of cultural sociology? Four issues are highlighted. Empirically, they suggest that cultural sociologists should remedy their under-emphasis of transnational processes, and also that the influence of specialized cultural institutions like art on broader culture processes should be reconsidered. Theoretically, they encourage a renewed emphasis on understanding the causal significance of culture. Finally, the articles here suggest that the proliferation of theoretical concepts in cultural sociology creates a productive ambiguity encouraging the development and diffusion of the field, but also calls for better articulation of the pertinence of divergent analytic tools to particular research problems

Culture, communication, and creativity : reframing the relations of media, knowledge, and innovation in society by Hubert Knoblauch( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
It is the premise of this volume that the rising importance of creativity in modern culture is related to dramatic changes in communication. In the last decades we have witnessed a revolutionary change in the ways we interact with one another. This transformation of the structure of communication is one of the most decisive aspects of the creativity of culture. The full aim of this volume therefore is to explore the resulting transformation in the relations of culture, creativity, and communication
