Sample text

Giddens 1984, Bourdieu 1984, Bauman 2000) have all explored the way our methods of investigating the world help to construct and shape that world. In its boldest and strongest form, this type of thought is associated with ideas of performativity and constructivism, found in statements such as ‘economists make markets’ (Callon 2006). This work comes out of a range of disciplines, including theories that try to understand how social science participates in the construction of social reality (Berger and Luckmann 1991); how social science has enabled specific political projects, particularly in societies deemed un- or non-modern (Mitchell 2002); as well as how we might understand the role of methods in governmental power (Osborne and Rose 1999).

The second way is the realities themselves that are being described and performed by methods: Unless the research is complete nonsense, there will be people out there with the relevant attitudes about farm animal welfare, at least when they’re confronted with an appropriate questionnaire. And then, alongside the realities being made manifest, there are the implicit realities too, the collateral realities tacitly embedded in the method, in (for instance) the form of rational subjectivities and statistical collectivities.

This commitment is most succinctly summed up by a 2004 essay, Government and the value of culture (Jowell 2004), written by the then DCMS Secretary of State Tessa Jowell. Government and the value of culture represents Jowell’s reassertion of the place of aesthetic value in cultural policy, an attempt to bring the concept out of debates over both elitism and ‘dumbing down’. Whilst Jowell still shows the place of the Victorian concept that the best culture, as a set of values and experiences, will have a ‘civilising’ effect, akin to Bennett’s (2000) rationalisation of DCMS access policies, there is a stress on the concept that culture is at the heart of what it is to be human.
