Leerdoelen After completion of the course unit students will be able to report, in writing and orally, on the most important arts sociological issues and theories concerning the relationship between the arts and society to an audience of interested listeners.
Omschrijving Arts Sociology introduces students to how sociologists study the arts. Starting from the questions about how to define art sociologically, and what sociology is, the course subsequently turns attention to and focuses on consumption of art and culture, based on the critical sociology perspective of Pierre Bourdieu’s distinction theory, calling attention to the connection between cultural consumption patterns and
social stratification. As a further elaboration of this perspective, the course discusses the omnivore thesis that has been introduced as a way of nuancing distinction theory, and, lastly, gives an introduction to cultural policy studies.
