No Low Culture

Many sociologists say theres no such thing as low culture

Some sociologists say that the ideas of mass culture and low culture is based on an..... elitist perspective.
Bourdieu (1984) says the whole idea of high culture is ...... just a way of giving status to elite groups. he says that status is maintained by passing on cultural knowledge.
MArxists argue that high culture is just...... ruling class culture, and that ruling class have imposed their idea of culture on the rest of society, and defined it as better than working class culture.
Some Marxists say that low culture is just as sophisticated and complex as high culture. for that reason they prefer to use the term popular culture which is more of a positive view
Important work on popular culture is carried out by the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies. (CCCS), they analyse popular culture products like TV, magazines and youth fashions and find meanings within them.
