Cultural Scenes [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
This article draws on the experience of a five-year interdisciplinary research project concerned with urban culture in four cities. It develops the notion of scene to account for the loose boundaries which surround urban cultural activity and the complex relationships of this activity to broader patterns of social life within cities. The textures of urban life are produced in the ongoing investment and change which characterize the history of scenes. Using examples from Manchester, England and Montreal, Quebec, this article shows how cultural activities such as music do not simply inhabit scenes, but work upon the social and institutional foundations of cities so as to produce distinctive complexes of knowledge and behaviour.
