    Cultural capital in the elite subfield of Swedish higher education2016In: Poetics (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0304-422X, E-ISSN 1872-7514, Vol. 56, p. 15-34Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The idea of a strong tie between culture and education, advocated by Bourdieu and his colleagues from the 1960s, is in this article explored in detail by investigating cultural capital in both its embodied state, expressed in tastes and cultural practices among students in the elite subfield of Swedish higher education, and its institutionalised state, through an analysis of the same students’ enrolment patterns. By applying Specific MCA to a questionnaire answered by 1152 students at 20 socially and scholarly selective programmes we identify three main dimensions in the space of lifestyles. The first dimension separates advanced and legitimate cultural practices and tastes from mainstream ones. In a second dimension, elaborate and often costly body-oriented practices in training or clothing are distinguished from a more ascetic lifestyle. The third dimension opposes a pole of establishment from a pole of non-establishment. The study programmes are well dispersed in the space of lifestyles, which suggests a close relation between embodied and institutionalised states of cultural capital. We finally argue that the pursuit of field-specific capital best explains this dispersion: the future trajectories into specific regions of the field of power tend to correspond to distinct lifestyles of various categories of elite students.

    The field of television production: Genesis, structure and positiontakings2020In: Poetics (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0304-422X, E-ISSN 1872-7514, article id 10.1016/j.poetic.2019.101432Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As a leading scholar of the social conditions of cultural production, Pierre Bourdieu had little to

    say about large-scale media production. This study, however, brings the theoretical-empirical

    program that underpins studies of fields of cultural production within the Bourdieusian tradition

    to bear upon the Swedish field of television production. Two research questions are posed. First,

    what is the structure of the field of television production—what are the main hierarchies that

    divide agents in the field? Second, how do positions in the field correspond to agents’ ways of

    orienting themselves—how are various position-takings distributed in the field? These questions

    are answered with a multiple correspondence analysis with agents in the Swedish field of television

    production (n = 378). The field of television production is structured, first, along an

    incumbent-challenger axis; and second, according to an axis separating public service broadcasters

    and journalists rich on cultural capital from commercial broadcasters involved in drama

    and entertainment production. These dynamics, along with the position-takings assumed by

    agents in the field, are discussed.

    Playing with Capital: Inherited and Acquired Assets in a Jazz Audition2015In: Poetics (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0304-422X, E-ISSN 1872-7514, Vol. 48, p. 83-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A common dream among the youth is to become a successfulmusician. By surveying young aspiring musicians trying to enter aprestigious jazz audition, this paper examines assets and dispositionsinvolved in the formation of a music field. In the study webuild on Bourdieusian sociological theory and method in order tomap out a space of jazz contesters and characterize the group(s)seeking to enter. Our findings, based on a specific multiplecorrespondence analysis performed on 211 applicants, suggestthat the space of jazz contesters is structured by three importantfactors: (i) the total volume of music capital, (ii) commitment to the(professional) field of practice and (iii) the familiarity acquiredthrough previous music socialization and training. Using clusteringtechniques, we further distinguish four groups among theapplicants – Insiders, Outsiders, Inheritors and Underdogs – andreveal the success rate of the groups. We find that the acquisitionand enactment of field-specific symbolic assets is of particularimportance for elite music admissions, while at the same time thesizeable number of musically affluent candidates competing for asmall number of places turns the audition into an event underscoredwith considerable uncertainty.

    Nordic democracy of taste?: Cultural omnivorousness in musical and literary taste preferences in Finland2010In: Poetics (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0304-422X, E-ISSN 1872-7514, Vol. 38, no 3, p. 266-298Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article explores cultural omnivorousness in music and literature in Finland, one of the so-called Nordic welfare states. Based on nationally representative survey data, literature and music are examined for respondents' likings of different genres. Cultural omnivorousness is first examined by measuring omnivorousness as the sum of the likings of musical and literature genres ("omnivorousness by volume"), and second, by counting only those combinations of likings that cross cultural boundaries ("omnivorousness by composition"). Different taste combinations are constructed and explained by socio-demographic variables motivated by earlier research on omnivorousness and cultural tastes (most notably by Pierre Bourdieu). The results suggest that no matter how omnivorousness is operationalised, socio-demographic factors offer better explanations for literary preferences than for musical ones. In both literature and music, being female and highly educated were the main determinants of omnivorousness. If musical and literary genres are divided into "highbrow", "middlebrow" and "lowbrow", then the omnivore type combining likings from all three categories was the most typical of all combinations in both cultural fields, whereas the hypothetical "univore snob" (with likings exclusively limited to the highbrow genres) was practically non-existent. The results also show that those being omnivorous in music are largely omnivorous in literature also. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Culture, cognition and behavior in the pursuit of self-esteem2016In: Poetics (Amsterdam. Print), ISSN 0304-422X, E-ISSN 1872-7514, Vol. 54, p. 14-24Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Self-esteem research, arguably the largest field of research in the history of social science, has devoted much of its efforts to the idea that self-esteem causes a broad range of behavioral and social problems, but has failed to produce strong, consistent evidence for most claims. However, this research has conceptual and methodological problems, including a limited understanding of the role of culture, and the assumption that global levels of self-esteem are the main causal mechanism of interest. This paper argues that self-esteem motivated behavior may be better understood as socio-culturally contextualized pursuits of valued identities, which are difficult to understand without considering their social and cultural conditions. Self-esteem therefore lies at the intersection of culture and cognition, and it is argued that an interdisciplinary approach to self-esteem pursuits could be beneficial. A way to reconcile constructionist views of identity with a cognitive self is then suggested and discussed. It is possible, by drawing on models of neurocognition, to think of a cognitive self as performed, context-dependent, and emergent rather than fixed, internal, and expressed. Finally, the paper discusses the social contingencies and consequences of self-esteem pursuits in relation to research issues such as aggression, stratification, crime, masculinity, and political attitudes.
