The politics of cultural work

Banks, Mark (2007). The politics of cultural work. Basingstoke, UK: Palgrave.



This book investigates the constraints and freedoms of cultural work and, in particular, the ways in which different sociological traditions have sought to theorize the cultural industries workplace and the creative cultural worker. It is the first book to provide a comprehensive overview of the varied critical theory, governmental and liberal-democratic approaches to cultural industries labour. Perhaps most notably, the book revisits and develops Alasdair MacIntyre’s work on social ‘practices’ in order to frame a new analysis of apparent emergence of ‘re-moralized’ cultural labour.
