The Department of Sociology has an established tradition of researching the cultural economy. Our work in this area explores how consumer markets are shaped and made, the role of markets in social and moral life, consumption and social divisions, and the cultural and creative industries. Highlights of present and previous research under this theme include:
- Cultural economies of insurance and credit;
- Culture, class and distinction;
- Cultures of social inequalities;
- Black British jazz;
- Moral economies of Fairtrade consumption and recycling.
This theme is affiliated with the Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change (CRESC), which makes a significant contribution to academic debates on public policy and social change in the UK and other national contexts.
