Cultural Sociology is a fully peer reviewed international journal that publishes original research and review articles concerning the sociological analysis of culture. It is jointly published by Sage and the British Sociological Association.

Cultural Sociology is explicitly dedicated to the sociological comprehension of cultural matters. Now firmly established, it acts as a key meeting point for sociological analysts of culture coming from a wide range of theoretical and methodological positions, and from a great variety of national contexts. It is a locale where different analytical traditions in cultural sociology and the sociology of culture can engage with and learn from each other.
