Cultural Sociology

Publisher: SAGE Publications and the British Sociological Association

Cultural Sociology is the first journal explicitly to be dedicated to the
sociological comprehension of cultural matters. It will act as a key meeting
point for sociological analysts of culture coming from a wide range of

national contexts. It will be a locale where different analytical traditions
in cultural sociology and the sociology of culture can engage with and learn
from each other.
