Cultural vs Economic Capital: Symbolic Boundaries within the Middle Class
Post. Doc. Vegard Jarness' article on the link between class-structured lifestyle differences and social closure, will be published in the forthcomming issue of Sociology.
This article focus on an insufficiently studied link in cultural class analysis, namely that between class-structured lifestyle differences and social closure.
It employs a modified version of Michèle Lamont’s promising, yet under-theorised approach to the study of symbolic boundaries – the conceptual distinctions made by social actors in categorising people, practices, tastes, attitudes and manners in everyday life.
