To mark the publication of the special issue ‘Producing and Consuming Inequality: A Cultural Sociology of the Cultural Industries’, Edinburgh College of Art held an evening of discussion, debate, and decision-making, themed around the problem of social inequality and the cultural sector.

 

The special issue was published in Volume 11, Issue 3 of Cultural Sociology and was edited by Dave O’Brien , Kim Allen , Sam Friedman , and Anamik Saha. Academic research, highlighted in Cultural Sociology, has shown the inequalities associated with who makes culture in the UK; what is represented on stage, on screen, and in print; and who consumes the culture of our government supported cultural organisations.

 

The evening consisted of a panel of cultural practitioners, hosted by the guest editors of the special issue. The speakers on the panel were:

-          Kate Fox, poet, comedian and academic;

-          Clive Gilman, Creative Scotland and Scottish Funding Council;

-          Robbie O’Neil, an actor whose work includes part in Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, and Casualty;

-          Yasmin Sulaiman, Editor-in-Chief at The List.

 

Following discussions and debate with the panel, audience Q&A considered how we might challenge some of the inequalities confronting contemporary culture.

The focus of the podcast is on Bauman’s central concepts of adiaphoria and the agentic state.

Author Eran Shor discuss his article, "A Paper Ceiling: Explaining the Persistent Underrepresentation of Women in Printed News," which was co-authored by Arnout van de Rijt, Alex Miltsov, Vivek Kulkarni, and Steven Skiena, and was published in the October 2015 issue of American Sociological Review.

 

Abstract:

In the early twenty-first century, women continue to receive substantially less media coverage than men, despite women’s much increased participation in public life. Media scholars argue that actors in news organizations skew news coverage in favor of men and male-related topics. However, no previous study has systematically examined whether such media bias exists beyond gender ratio imbalances in coverage that merely mirror societal-level structural and occupational gender inequalities. Using novel longitudinal data, we empirically isolate media-level factors and examine their effects on women’s coverage rates in hundreds of newspapers. We find that societal-level inequalities are the dominant determinants of continued gender differences in coverage. The media focuses nearly exclusively on the highest strata of occupational and social hierarchies, in which women’s representation has remained poor. We also find that women receive greater exposure in newspaper sections led by female editors, as well as in newspapers whose editorial boards have higher female representation. However, these differences appear to be mostly correlational, as women’s coverage rates do not noticeably improve when male editors are replaced by female editors in a given newspaper.

Robbie McVeigh argues that, with demographic change in Northern Ireland, racist violence has become one of the principal manifestations of unionist unease. The state's reaction to racism has been to tolerate a level of acceptable violence. People of colour and migrant workers in NI, he argues, have been 'living the peace process in reverse'.

Author Jen-Hao Chen discusses his article "Marriage, Relationship Quality, and Sleep among U.S. Older Adults," which was coauthored with Linda J. Waite, and Diane S. Lauderdale, and appears in the September 2015 of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior.

 

Abstract:

Sleep is a restorative behavior essential for health. Poor sleep has been linked to adverse health outcomes among older adults; however, we know little about the social processes that affect sleep. Using innovative actigraphy data from the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (N = 727), we considered the role of marriage, positive marital relationship support, and negative marital relationship strain on older adults’ (ages 62–90) self-reported and actigraph-measured sleep characteristics. We found that married older adults had better actigraph-estimated but not self-reported sleep characteristics than the unmarried. However, among the married, those who reported more negative aspects of their marital relationship reported more insomnia symptoms, with the association reduced when psychosocial characteristics were added to the model. The married who reported more positive aspects of their marital relationship showed better actigraph-estimated sleep characteristics; taking characteristics of the physical and mental health and home environment into account reduced this association.

Author William Pridemore discusses his article "The Mortality Penalty of Incarceration: Evidence from a Population-based Case-control Study of Working-age Males" which was published in the June 2014 issue of the Journal of Health and Social Behavior.

Abstract:

There is a growing body of research on the effects of incarceration on health, though there are few studies in the sociological literature of the association between incarceration and premature mortality. This study examined the risk of male premature mortality associated with incarceration. Data came from the Izhevsk (Russia) Family Study, a large-scale population-based case-control design. Cases (n = 1,750) were male deaths aged 25 to 54 in Izhevsk between October 2003 and October 2005. Controls (n = 1,750) were selected at random from a city population register. The key independent variable was lifetime prevalence of incarceration. I used logistic regression to estimate mortality odds ratios, controlling for age, hazardous drinking, smoking status, marital status, and education. Seventeen percent of cases and 5 percent of controls had been incarcerated. Men who had been incarcerated were more than twice as likely as those who had not to experience premature mortality (odds ratio = 2.2, 95 percent confidence interval: 1.6–3.0). Relative to cases with no prior incarceration, cases who had been incarcerated were more likely to die from infectious diseases, respiratory diseases, non–alcohol-related accidental poisonings, and homicide. Taken together with other recent research, these results from a rigorous case-control design reveal not only that incarceration has durable effects on illness, but that its consequences extend to a greater risk of early death. I draw on the sociology of health literature on exposure, stress, and social integration to speculate about the reasons for this mortality penalty of incarceration.
