“Measuring Culture is the canonical text we have been waiting for in the sociology of culture. It is a massive achievement that will be the definitive account on the topic for a long time to come. I’ll be thinking with it, teaching with it, and recommending it.”
~Clayton Childress, author of Under the Cover: The Creation, Production, and Reception of a Novel
It’s the second day of the American Sociological Association annual meeting, and we’re celebrating with a book giveaway! Measuring Culture takes the reader on a tour of the state of the art in measuring meaning, from discussions of neuroscience to computational social science. It provides both the definitive introduction to the sociological literature on culture as well as a critical set of case studies for methods courses across the social sciences.
