Abstract

This seminar is created for students interested in studies of cultural production, consumption and reproduction with special emphasis on art and fashion worlds, creative labor and networks, contemporary art institutions and status reproduction through parenting practices. We will discuss (1) classical works on social history of art, on art worlds and fields of fashion and of cultural production, (2) contemporary empirical papers on art institutions and art participation, (3) empirical papers with various types of research design (surveys, network analysis, historical sociology, participant observation, organizational analysis etc.). The seminar is intended for students who have previously attended research seminars of the BA in Sociology and Social Informatics in the previous years.
