Cultural Sociology in Practice is a concise introduction to the burgeoning new field of cultural sociology. Using straightforward language and popular examples, the book sorts out various cultural concepts and types of cultural analysis. Part I outlines the origins and theoretical premises of cultural sociology, and it demonstrates culturalist approaches to religion, the media/popular culture, and race/ethnicity. Part II explains exciting new culturalist methods, focusing on ethnography, discourse analysis, audience/reception research, and cultural history. The text also includes lists of key terms and study questions, providing a useful overview for students grappling with cultural concepts for the first time.
