Cultural sociology aims at incorporating the central role of meaning-making into the analysis of social phenomena. This article presents an overview of cultural sociology, focusing on its main theoretical frames, methodological strategies and empirical investigations. It compares two different ways of connecting cultural codes and social interactions in the analysis of social phenomena. The interplay between the cultural and the social and the focus on meaning variations are two central principles of analysis from which cultural sociologists seek to revitalize the notion of culture in sociology.
