Contemporary cultural capital

If somebody was to do a parody of the research behind Bourdieu’s Distinction in Melbourne today what information should they collect? My suggestions include:

  • What is the name of your home wireless network?
  • How many local microbreweries can you name?
  • When did you start drinking cider?
  • What bars have you stopped going to? When did you stop going there and why?
  • Can you knit? What age did you lean to knit? (double points if male, no points if started under 15 years of age)
  • What second hand shops have you gone to in the past month?
  • Would you describe your music tastes as being ‘a bit random’?
