Main content

The article is published in the honorable british Journal of Sociology, and focuses on an insufficiently studied link in cultural class analysis, namely that between class-structured lifestyle differences and social closure.

The award committee states that the article is "a joy to read " and "in particular the article is a contribution to the sociological theory development through it's creative combination of perspectives of Pierre Bourdieu , Michèle Lamont and Max Weber".
