    lire le résumé

    Al permitir una superación de las falsas oposiciones y de los límites de las nociones ad hoc a menudo movilizadas por las aproximaciones dominantes en el análisis de políticas públicas, el modo de pensamiento relacional de la teoría de los campos ofrece una base útil para la construcción de las políticas del Estado como un objeto propio del análisis sociológico. El presente artículo propone esa perspectiva de movilizar el concepto de campo para analizar la acción pública en tanto ella está socialmente fundada sobre relaciones entre espacios sociales distintos, al tiempo que contribuye a estructurarlos.

    lire le résumé

    Vocational occupations are attractive not so much for their material rewards as for the prestige and self-fulfillment they confer. They require a strong personal commitment, which can be subjectively experienced in terms of passion and selflessness. The choice of a career in the cultural sector provides a good example of this. What are the terms of this calling ? What predisposes individuals to answer it ? What are the meanings of such a choice ? To answer these questions, this book focuses on would-be cultural managers. By identifying their social patterns, by revealing the resources, expectations and visions of the world they invest in their choice, it sheds new light on these occupations. In these intermediary and indeterminate social positions, family heritages intersect with educational strategies and aspirations of upward mobility with tactics against downward mobility. Ultimately the study of career choices in cultural management suggests a new take on the analysis of social reproduction. The empirical findings of this research conducted in France are set in a broader comparative perspective, at the European level and with the USA.

    ’Every year, thousands of talented young people aspire to careers in the arts. Vincent Dubois’s brilliant sociological analysis of French careers in cultural management reveals the challenges - and often disappointments - which lie in their way. This book will be essential reading across the globe for those interested in how career patterns in the cultural sector are changing’. Pr. Mike Savage, Head of Sociology Department and Chair, London School of Economics

    ’Many have wondered : what is arts management ? Few answers truly satisfy. Vincent Dubois poses a set of fresh questions and manages to answer this and far more in his well-researched, highly readable volume. It should be required reading in our field.’
    Pr. Constance DeVereaux, Director, LEAP Institute for the Arts, Colorado State University, USA
