The local and popular adjectives refer to the fact that these sectors and activities, for the most part, come from intangible heritage accumulated in the communities, with strong roots in their territories. The articles stand out for their theoretical and empirical quality. We also want to highlight the variety of the papers where you can observe different perspectives of the Popular Culture developed by a group of researchers from Europe and America.</p> Jesús Heredia-Carroza Luis F.

Following its creation in 1984, the Ministry of Culture of the Andalusian Autonomous Government incorporated a Directorate-General for Cultural Assets into its organisational structure and embarked on an ambitious programme of actions to support Andalusian historical heritage, including creation of a management structure, enactment of a specific heritage law and budget allocations for protection tasks. From the outset, a type of heritage little known until then emerged: ethnological heritage. Dynamic actions were also promoted to fund research into this area, including grants for ethnological activities, financing for publications and funding for ethnological symposiums.</p> <p>This paper analyses the different ethnological activities carried out and their funding, and assesses the extent to which this investment favoured the professional development of teaching staff in the field of Social Anthropology in Andalusia, specifying the marginal effects and differentiating them according to gender and university size using binary choice models (Logit).</p> Celeste Jiménez de Madariaga Juan José García del Hoyo Copyright (c) 2021 Celeste Jiménez de Madariaga, Juan José García del Hoyo 2021-11-23 2021-11-23 68 1 33 10.47743/saeb-2021-0029 Temporal Restriction and Interest for the Elderly on Cultural Participation. The Case of Spanish Performing Arts 2019 <p>This paper discusses the relationship of cultural participation in performing arts with the manifested interest. Using the data set from the Cultural Habits and Practices Survey 2018-2019 a binary probit model has been applied for the analysis. Emphasizing the role of aging in participation, especially for the group of the elderly and very old. The age variable is one of the most difficult variables to apprehend, in which the cohort effects, age itself and period should be considered. This paper is an approach to the study of the aging effect on cultural participation, which would be continued with the analysis of the Surveys in previous years. This work shows that there is no homogeneous behavior between participation and interest within the different performing arts. Presenting some of them differentiating features.</p> Blas DÍaz León Ignacio Martinez Fernandez Luis Palma Martos Copyright (c) 2021 Blas DÍaz León, Ignacio Martinez Fernandez, Luis Palma Martos 2021-11-23 2021-11-23 68 35 52 10.47743/saeb-2021-0030 Cultural Participation and Subjective Well-Being in Latin America: Does Ethnic-Racial Ascription Matter? <p>Cultural participation has been evidenced to bring several benefits to the well-being of individuals. However, the analysis of this relationship has been addressed mostly in the context of Westernized countries, without considering the diversity of populations in Latin America. Therefore, the aim of this manuscript is to explore the association between cultural participation and subjective well-being (measured by life satisfaction) in Latin America, considering ethnic-racial ascription. With data from the 2013 Latinobarómetro survey (n=20204), several ordered logit regression analyses were performed. Results suggest that read books, read news, attend movies, attend theater, visit heritage places, and participation in community celebrations are associated with life satisfaction. However, these relationships show differentiated patterns depending on the ethnic-racial ascription, which implies that the positive impacts of cultural participation cannot be attributed to all populations, highlighting a process of social exclusion where some individuals get benefits of cultural participation, while others do not.</p> Javier Reyes-Martinez Copyright (c) 2021 Javier Reyes-Martinez 2021-11-26 2021-11-26 68 53 70 10.47743/saeb-2021-0031 How to Measure Flamenco Performer Value? A Cultural Economic Approach <p>This article designs an empirical methodology to measure the perceived value of the performers, specifically using the significant example of flamenco performer. The methodology is based on an Ordered Logit Model whose dependent variable is the valuation of the flamenco performer by spectators, which complements the research carried out by <a href="#_ENREF_10">Heredia-Carroza (2019)</a>. The results show that virtuosity, feelings, Roma origin of the performer are significant and they have a positive effect in the valuation of it. Also, spectator’s features as time consuming and number of albums acquired have a positive effect in the performer valuation. Finally, the results have a greater importance as they provide recording companies, an instrument that reduces uncertainty about the characteristics of the performer and it can also be used as a decision-making instrument for future signings of performers in record companies based on the spectators’ perceptions. This methodology could be replicated for the study of other musical genres.</p> Jesús Heredia-Carroza Helena Saraiva Carlos Chavarría-Ortíz Copyright (c) 2021 Jesús Heredia-Carroza, Helena Saraiva, Carlos Chavarría-Ortíz 2021-12-06 2021-12-06 68 71 77 10.47743/saeb-2021-0033 Who Participates in Popular Feasts and Festivals? An Empirical Approach from Cultural Economics Applied to the Carnival of Barranquilla (Colombia) <p>The empirical analysis of individual participation in local and popular feasts and festivals is a field little explored by cultural economists. This article proposes a methodological scheme to analyse the profile of the participants in local and popular feasts and carnivals, allowing the establishment of a taxonomy that captures the heterogeneity of the participants replicable to other festivities and carnivals around the world. Similarly, participation equations that allow the analysis of the influence of context variables on individual decisions to participate in these types of events are estimated. For this, the Carnival of Barranquilla, the largest and most representative popular celebration in Colombia and declared by UNESCO as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, is used as a case study. The data were obtained from the Citizen Perception Survey of the Barranquilla Cómo Vamos programme, which evaluates the quality of life and the fulfilment of development plans in that city, and an empirical strategy is employed consisting of the estimation of a probit discrete choice model, which allows modelling the individual decisions of a time-intensive good, such as a carnival, with a strong influence of traditional variables, such as cultural capital and the availability of leisure time, and other context variables: location of people in the territory, stratification and poverty. The different profiles found offer information on the different strategies that can be implemented from public policy to stimulate greater participation by the population in popular festivities and festivals.</p> Aaron Espinosa Espinosa Luis Palma Martos Luis Aguado Quintero Copyright (c) 2021 Aaron Espinosa Espinosa, Luis Palma Martos, Luis Aguado Quintero 2021-12-02 2021-12-02 68 79 103 10.47743/saeb-2021-0032
