08-29-3-SP12-1Development Sociology: Theory and Policy in Practice (in englischer Sprache)
[Entwicklungssoziologie: Theorie und Politik in ihrer Umsetzung]

Vorlesung

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 08:00 - 10:00 SFG 2060 (2 SWS)

Development Sociology emerged and was actively developed by scholars in many countries in the 1960s and 1970s and sharpened as a result of emerging tensions between modernisation and dependency theories. It was the disciplinary child of the project of international development, and as such also the child of colonialism, growing up and being shaped by imperial and colonial pasts, Cold War legacies, , together with increasing wealth inequalities both across and between the North and South.
The module ‘Development Sociology’ introduces the students to (1) the different theories of development, (2) the implementation of development theory inspired policies in development practice, as well as (3) the epistemological and methodological tools of development research.
The lecture ‘Development Sociology: Theory and Policy in Practice’ will cover the following development theories and their influences on policy practice:
• Modernisation and Growth
• Dependency and Self-Reliance
• Neoliberalism and Structural Adjustment
• Participation and Sustainability
• Women and Gender
• Post-Development and Alternatives
• Multiple Modernities, Risks and Acceleration

Each theoretical approach will be dealt with in two sessions of the lecture. The first deals with the theory itself and will be based on the obligatory readings, the second deals with its implementation in practice by drawing on key empirical research findings and country examples.
The seminar ‘Development Theory in Practice: Empirical Examples and Methodological Tools’ will deepen and extend reflection of selected key themes engaged with in the lecture by exploring empirical examples. Additionally it introduces the students to the following methodological considerations and tools for empirical development research:
• Relative and Multi-dimensional Poverty analyses, Growth and Well-being Indices and Knowledge Society Indices – capitalist/market-led influences on data collection, sharing and dissemination
• Community-based participatory tools: mixed methods household surveying, group-based interviewing and focus groups, and Participatory Learning & Action (PLA) approaches
• Long term field research: Emic and etic worldviews, embeddedness, participant observation, researcher reflectivity, positionality, ethics and role of local language skills
• Development policy analyses (drawing from Critical Policy Studies)
• Mobile ethnographies and ethnographies of mobility: Follow the Innovation, the Migrant, the Epistemology, non-human natures & multi-sited Research Methodologies
• Audio-visual and inter-textual methods in research

The seminar will utilize varied teaching formats and styles that place emphasis on nurturing students´ independent thinking, the development of their own thematic fields of interest and the ability to write. The experiential element will include features such as situational presentations (e.g. pitching a project idea), poster sharing sessions and experimentation with other self-selected genres (e.g. life history narratives, scripts for short sketches, infographics and political cartoons), together with the development of academic material in the form of short papers and small-project proposals. The students are particularly encouraged to use the seminar to develop their ability to formulate arguments and substantiate these in a written format – also linked to their own thesis topics.
Irrespective of the teaching format, all sessions will substantially build on obligatory readings and the writing samples produced by the students. The completion of individual and group project work is vital to ensuring the quality of in-class discussions. All obligatory and recommended readings will be made available for download via StudIP.

08-29-GS-23Gender Inequality and Stratification (in englischer Sprache)
[Geschlechterungleichheit und soziale Ungleichheit]

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 08:00 - 10:00 UNICOM 3.3380 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 3) (2 SWS)

This seminar will address the relationship between social class and gender-based forms of stratification in modern societies and in historical perspective. Overall, the question of interest is why the inequalities at the intersection of class and gender in paid and unpaid work persist across industrialized societies despite some impressive policy achievements over the past half century. The primary literature source will be the book “Gender-Class Equality in Political Economies”. In this book, Lynn Prince Cooke places gender inequality in a context that is historically shaped by the intersections of multiple inequalities and the particularities of six countries: Germany (East and West), Spain, Australia, the UK and the US. Gender-class inequalities persist in paid work hours, wages, and the division of housework. The study shows how values, choices, and behaviors of individual men and women in various national contexts are enabled and constrained by state policies that effectively structure relative group advantage and disadvantage from birth through old age.
