“Talking about Beauty” by Lucia Ruggerone and Neil Jenkings #sssi #sociology #aesthetics

There is a long standing interactionist concern with art and aesthetics. Save for the famous works by Howard Becker, such as “Art Worlds” and his studies of jazz music and musicians there also are a considerable number of articles in our journal that explore people’s accounts of their personal taste, such as Phillip Vannini’s “The Meanings of a Star“. The latter kinds of articles are related to the topic of aesthetics in everyday life that is the topic of the recent posts on the SSSI Music Blog and of Ruggerone and Jenking’s paper “Talking of Beauty” that has just been published on Early View of the Journal. Subscribers can access the article by clicking on the image below.
