ABSTRACT

Based on Bourdieu's efforts on cultural capital, this paper explores the role of cultural capital in the formation of leisure taste and social reproduction. The concept of cultural capital was developed to analyze the impact of culture on the class system and on the relationship between action and social structure. Cultural capital is an indicator and a basis of class position, cultural attitudes, preferences, and behaviors are conceptualized as taste which are being mobilized for social selection. Leisure tastes such as leisure preference, attitude, and choice of destination and leisure activities vary with cultural and economic capital. Leisure tastes are production of individual's subjective life and formed by individual's social position. From the sociological perspective, this study suggests several research problems to be solved.
