New Forms of Cultural Capital: Public discussion

Speakers:  Professor Philippe Coulangeon, Dr Sam Friedman, Dr Laurie Hanquinet, Dr Andy Miles
Chair: Professor Mike Savage

Our research group will discuss with one of the French leading experts on cultural capital – Philippe Coulangeon -whether traditional forms of ‘highbrow’ cultural capital associated with the dominance of the classical and historical canon are being eclipsed by  newer and more fluid kinds of cultural tastes, associated with contemporary music and art, sport, and engaging with the social media and computer games.

This is an occasion to meet Philippe Coulangeon, who is Director of Research at SNRS, SciencesPo and Visiting Professor in th Department of Sociology at LSE.
