Two quick questions I could really use help with:
1. Anybody know of a comprehensive index of social and cultural capital measures? If not, how about “sort of” comprehensive?
2. What social science concept or construct would you use to describe the attributes of a person that are socially conditioned, but not reducible to “cultural capital?” (or any other the other capitals…) For example, in my work on music, I know that (class) origins influence a lot of their behavior and identity. But I also know they respond to (aka construct their persona in light of) local circumstances–being a musician in Detroit, or being a rock musician, or combinations: being a male rock musician working in Detroit. Do we have a way of bundling this other stuff into a concept? “Identity” is too vague, “cultural capital” has already been accounted for, my concept of “genre ideal” gets close but is idiosyncratic to my work. I’m thinking someone else has got a gizmo. I feel like it’s on the tip of my brain and I just can’t conjure it up. Has to–of course–be conceptually autonomous from cultural, social, and economic capital (conceptualized by Bourdieu) to work.
ANY help would be appreciated. Point me to things in the comments or message me directly. MUCH THANKS.
