Cultural Capital

Cultural capital is a sub-division of symbolic capital. It is the pursuit of greater status through all things cultural – architecture, art, music, literature, local customs etc. It is one of the principal drivers in the field of cultural production, and it’s ebbs, flows and changes. Those with more (editors, critics, academics etc) are able to coerce the field under a doxic veil – the public believe that this is ‘natural’ and thus do not seek to question it.
