Cultural Entrepreneurship in nineteenth-century Boston
One of the first papers I have come across my research in CulEnt is a paper entitled “Cultural Entrepreneurship in nineteenth-century Boston: the creation of an organizational base for high culture in America” by Paul Dimaggio, published in the Journal “Media, Culture and Society” (1982 4, 33-50).
The author explains the organizational models in Boston before the Gilded Age, the context of cultural capitalism and the centralization of artistic activities. He concludes with explaining the classification ‘high culture/popular culture’ in an interesting way.
