During the last two decades, sociologist Pierre Bourdieu has become a dominant force in cultural activity ranging from taste in music and art to choices in food and lifestyles. The Field of Cultural Production brings together Bourdieu's major essays on art and literature and provides the first introduction to Bourdieu's writings and theory of a cultural field that situates artistic works within the social conditions of their production, circulation, and consumption.Bourdieu addresses many of the burning issues that have consumed literary, art, and cultural criticism over the past decade: aesthetic value and canonicity, intertextuality, the institutional frameworks of cultural practice, the social role of intellectuals and artists, and structures of literary and artistic authority.

Pierre Bourdieu; Edited by Randal Johnson


Since the early 1970s, French sociologist Bourdieu has become a major theoretical voice in the critical study of cultural practices. This volume brings together Bourdieu's major essays on art, literature, and culture, published between 1968 and 1987. It includes articles appearing in English for the first time, others previously published in book and journals but not always readily accessible, and a series of three lectures presented as the Christian Gauss Seminars in Criticism at Princeton U. in 1986, here published for the first time in any language.
