Mike Savage on cultural sociology in Britain

Mike Savage has been asked to write an overview of cultural sociology in Britain for the American Cultural Sociology newsletter. He has posted a draft version of the piece on the Stratification & Culture Research Network blog. The piece provides an account of the key areas of development in cultural sociology – including cultural studies, cultural theory and cultural class analysis. Mike provides an account if each of the key developments. There are also some interesting comments at the end of the post. It’s hard to summarise British cultural sociology, it’s quite diverse in terms of theories, methods and topics, but this piece brings together the core issues. It’s interesting to reflect on why the cultural turn has played-out in the way it has.
