Abstract

In this article we apply Multiple Correspondence Analysis to map the social structuring of cultural lifestyles in Flanders. Using survey data on cultural practices and dispositions of 2,849 people representative for the Flemish population, we are able to distinguish three underlying structuring dimensions: engagement versus disengagement, highbrow versus action and openness versus less openness. Cultural and economic capital are found to be associated with the first dimension, age with the second. The third dimension is related to different combinations of social categories. Results show that individuals express their openness to cultural practices in various and differing ways depending on the position they occupy in the social space, omnivorousness being only one of the manifestations specifically related to younger respondents with a lot of cultural capital.
