General Studies - FB 08 Sozialwissenschaften

I. General Studies - Fachergänzende Studien des FB 08 (Sozialwissenschaften)

Die fachergänzenden Studien (General Studies) sind Bestandteil des wissenschaftlichen Studiums, die ca. 25 % des Bachelorstudiums umfassen. Dieser Bereich bietet Ihnen die Möglichkeit, über das Fachstudium hinaus, Veranstaltungen zu besuchen, die Ihren Interessen entsprechen. Zudem können Sie ein berufliches Profil bilden, indem Sie Fach- und Methodenkenntnisse anderer Fachrichtungen erwerben. Ihre persönliche Expertise kann Ihnen den Zugang zu einem Masterstudium oder den Berufseinstieg erleichtern. Außerdem können Sie die fachergänzenden Studien nutzen, um Ihre Fremdspachenkenntnisse auszubauen und zu vertiefen.

Die fachergänzenden Studien der zentralen Einrichtungen der Universität Bremen (Studierwerkstatt, International Office, Fremdsprachenzentrum, BRIDGE Existensgründungsinitiative der Hochschulen, eGeneral Studies, Career Center) sind im Veranstaltungsverzeichnis an oberster Stelle aufgeführt.

Einen Überblick der fachergänzenden Studien des FB 08 (Sozialwissenschaften) erhalten Sie auf dieser Seite. Zum Teil ergänzt durch Studienangebote der zentralen Einrichtungen.

Die Bachelorstudiengänge des FB 08 (Sozialwissenschaften) legen in ihren Prüfungsordnungen fest, in welchem Umfang fachergänzende Studien (General Studies) im Wahl- und Wahlpflichtbereich anerkannt werden. Bitte lesen Sie Ihre Prüfungsordnung genau. Und beachten Sie den Studienplan Ihres Studiengangs.

Doch wie entscheiden Sie, welche fachergänzenden Studien für Sie richtig und sinnvoll sind? Woran orientieren Sie sich dabei?

Bevor Sie darüber nachdenken, sollten Sie sich folgende Fragen beantworten: Welche Ziele will ich im Studium und darüber hinaus erreichen? Wie kann ich die Anforderungen im Fachstudium erfolgreich bewaeltigen? Was will ich nach dem Studium beruflich machen? Wo möchte ich mich beruflich engagieren? Wie kann ich erkennen, was meine Stärken sind? Wie finde ich heraus, ob ich für meinen Traumberuf ausreichend qualifiziert bin? Was muss ich wissen, um ein anspruchsvolles Praktikum zu finden? Wie kann ich herausfinden, was in einem Praktikum von mir erwartet wird?

Wenn Sie sich ernsthaft mit diesen Fragen beschäftigen, werden Sie merken, dass Sie einen Lernprozess beginnen, den Sie selbst aktiv steuern. Sie übernehmen die Verantwortung für Ihre berufliche Zukunft. Sie sortieren das Studienangebot der Universität Bremen bzw. des FB 08 nach ihren eigenen Kriterien – zumindest für den Bereich fachergänzende Studien (General Studies).

Das Zentrum Studium und Praxis des FB 08 unterstützt Sie gerne bei der Beantwortung Ihrer Fragen. Nehmen Sie dafür bitte die Sprechzeiten wahr.

Darüber hinaus können Sie in der Stud.IP Dauerveranstaltung \"PraxisForum FB 8\" aktuelle Praktikumsangebote, Ausschreibungen für Hilfskraftstellen und Stellenangebote für Absolvent(en)innen herunterladen. Die Absolventenstellen sollen aufzeigen, wo Sozialwissenschaftler/innen gesucht werden. Sie dienen als Orientierung für die Klärung Ihrer beruflichen Vorstellungen.

Sie sind herzlich eingeladen, sich in die Dauerveranstaltung als Autoren einzutragen.

Dates:
fortnightly (starts in week: 2) Mon. 18:00 - 20:00 (2 Teaching hours per week) Online

Willkommen bei CorrelAidXBremen! Wir sind eine bunte Mischung von Datenbegeisterten aus verschiedenen Fach- und Arbeitsbereichen von Anfängern bis zu Profis, die mit Datenanalyse etwas Gutes bezwecken wollen. Uns ist es wichtig, von- und miteinander zu lernen und das möglichst praxisnah. Daher haben wir den Bremer Datentreff ins Leben gerufen, bei dem wir Data Challenges in R / Python in Angriff nehmen, uns gegenseitig kleine Projekte vorstellen (z.B. eine Analyse innerhalb einer Seminararbeit oder spannende Datenvisualisierungstechniken), oder auch einfach nur zusammenkommen und uns austauschen. Es herrscht eine lockere angenehme Atmosphäre, in der auch vermeintlich „dumme“ Fragen gestellt werden können. Wenn du Interesse hast, deine Datenkenntnisse auszubauen, dann bist du bei uns genau richtig!
Der Datentreff findet alle zwei Wochen Montagabends via Zoom auf Deutsch oder Englisch statt, wobei je nach Teilnehmerzahl ggf. auch ein anderer, besser passender Termin vereinbart werden kann.

Welcome to CorrelAidXBremen! We are a diverse mix of data enthusiasts from different fields of study and work. We have different skill levels, but we are all united by the idea of using data analysis as means to do something good. It is important to us to learn from and with each other as well as with a practical orientation. That’s why we launched the Bremen Data Meet-Up, where we tackle data challenges in R / Python, present small projects to each other (e.g. an analysis within a seminar paper or exciting data visualization techniques), or we just get together and have a chat. This all happens in an informal and relaxed atmosphere and any questions (including those supposedly “stupid” ones) may be asked.
The Data Meet-Up takes place every two weeks on monday evening via Zoom in German or English. Depending on the number of participants, another, more suitable date can be arranged if necessary.

08-27-GS-1Ocean and coastal conflicts, their origins, trajectories and potential solutions (Conflicts II) (in English)
Block Seminar 21.07.-22.07.2022 and 25.07. - 27.07.2022

Blockveranstaltung (Teaching)
ECTS: 3

Seventy percent of the earth surface is covered by oceans and a great majority of humanity lives in the coastal zone. Our planet is reaching or has passed planetary boundaries that delimit how current and future humanity can live. Conflicts in the ocean and coastal realm are on the increase. In line with this, global sustainability research is now strongly focussing on ocean conflicts and crises. This block seminar examines the potentials of currently operating and very recently finished global sustainability research projects in the ocean and coastal realm. We ask: What ocean and coastal conflicts are there? How do they arise and what are their major drivers and outcomes? How do we currently study this and what does these approaches imply for our results? What conflict management tools and strategies exist and what are their results? Last, but not least, we critically examine the intention of current ocean conflict research to transform ocean conflicts into opportunities for sustainability enhancing interactions. The seminar aims to convey and co-develop knowledge surrounding natural resource conflicts in the Anthropocene and identify current knowledge gaps.
The entire course will be conducted in English. There will be contributions from currently ongoing global sustainability and conflict research projects. Participants contribute on a topic of their choice on an individual or group basis. This work will be elaborated during the block seminar and graded on request.

Seminar (Teaching)
ECTS: 3

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 2) Mon. 14:00 - 16:00 SH D1020 (2 Teaching hours per week)

War reporters are closely connected to the cultural, military and social history of the First World War. Whether they reported from the battle fields, the vicinity of the front or the home front, they offered their eyewitness accounts of the war and its impact on soldiers and civilians to the wider public. It has been has argued that the First World War was reported from an almost exclusively male perspective and that woman war reporters were rare. This seminar sets out to challenge this view. Between 1914-1918 women journalists from belligerent and neutral countries gained access to the war theatres and published their eyewitness accounts and photographs in newspapers and magazines around the world. They covered all aspects of the war, thus complementing the war images provided by men. This seminar will familiarise you with the lives and work of women war reporters. We will not only study key texts of the historiography, but also explore primary source materials from international digitised newspaper archives. By reading about women’s lives, and reading the texts they wrote, you will be acquainted with the First World War and the role women journalists played in representing the conflict to the wider public.

Lecture (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Tue. 10:00 - 12:00 SFG 1010

This series of interconnected lectures serves as an introduction to social theory and cultural criticism. Themes include: definitions of culture, theories of identity; modernity and postmodernity; language, semiotics and (post)structuralism; cultural memory; psychoanalysis; race, ethnicity and imperial legacies; Marxist critiques; culture and gender; and study of culture in the age of globalization.

08-31-2-M5c-2Culture and its Media: Words, Images, Actions (in English)

Seminar (Teaching)
ECTS: 6

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Wed. 12:00 - 14:00 GW2 B3850

This seminar explores foundational themes in cultural studies through constructive discussion of different types of "signifying practice". Emphasis is placed on contemporary European identities, modern nationhood, gender, and memory. The guiding question throughout the semester is: in what ways do different products of culture (de)construct narratives of identity and belonging?

Participants will become familiarized with key theories of social and cultural identity while learning to work with a range of different media, from the written word to museum displays and music videos.

By the end of the course, students should be able to:

• perform in-depth critical analysis of a variety of cultural media, including literary texts, films, visual artworks, museums, rituals, etc., studying them as cultural artefacts embedded in national, European and global societies;
• engage in theoretically informed discussions about the differences between cultural media as products of (European) culture;
• demonstrate knowledge of key theories of culture, including critical social theory, nationalism theory, postcolonial theory, etc.

The course seeks to familiarize students with the main theories, concepts and methods used in International Political Economy (IPE) as a true inter-discipline that is situated somewhere between International Relations, Political Economy, Economic Geography and Economics. Based on the core question(s) of “who gets what, why, when, where and how?” it tackles the interactions and mutual dependencies of political and economic dynamics on an international scale. After a critical assessment of major IPE approaches, we move on to key topics like trade, production, finance and development. Towards the end of the first seminar block we will also deal with the two hot topics of environmental policies, data and property rights. Combining a broad overview with in-depth applications of common theories and established research methods (single-case studies, comparative studies, regression analyses, QCA or Event History Analysis), the course enables students to analytically tackle central problems of the current international economic system and the variegated ways in which states, firms and societies interact.

Students can obtain either 6 or 9 credits. For details on the seminar requirements see the program website (https://www.uni-bremen.de/mair/program).

The state is widely considered to be the most important actor in international governance and, at the same time, a key concept in the social sciences. In recent years it has been argued that profound transformations are taking place which challenge the very foundations of the externally and internally sovereign modern state. The main tendencies of these transformations are the emergence of increasingly autonomous public and private institutions at the international level and the emergence of semiautonomous functional subsystems and powerful private actors at the domestic level. International governance thus takes place in a complex multi-level system with a variety of public and private actors. This course analyzes these developments and their consequences for modern governance, both theoretically and empirically, by looking at concrete examples in greater detail.

Students can obtain either 6 or 9 credits. For details on the seminar requirements see the program website (https://www.uni-bremen.de/mair/program).

The seminar connects social theory with the study of the international, building on foundations laid in “Modern Social Theory” and “Actors, Institutions, and Global Governance”. We will investigate how current theoretical debates and empirical research in International Relations are informed by social theories (practice theory, Marxism, dependency, feminism, post-colonial theory…), discuss key concepts of IR (statehood, imperialism, war, inequality, governance, capitalism…), and analyse concrete issues of global politics (climate change, development aid, the rise of China, global social policy, global trade…). The syllabus will be discussed in the first session and students are invited to bring their own suggestions. Different didactic approaches will be combined to encourage diverse and equitable participation and create a good working environment. In sum, the seminar has three overall aims: enabling students to critically reflect on the limits and potentials of established IR paradigms; understanding the value of using classic social theory in the study of international relations; and learning to apply theoretical lenses to empirical phenomena.

This course aims to provide an overview and understanding of some of the more commonly applied statistical techniques. It will cover methods for both continuous data as well as categorical data. The standard setting will be the supervised learning situation in which there is one target variable, the behavior of which is to be predicted by some other variables. We will briefly revise the essentials of confirmatory statistics, including hypothesis testing, significance and power, as well as the ideas behind data reduction, prediction and explanation. The course is “advanced” in terms of concepts and methods, rather than statistical theory or algebra. The focus will be on real-world applications, discussing the assumptions, limitations and interpretations of a wide range of statistical techniques.

Students can obtain either 6 or 9 credits. For details on the seminar requirements see the program website (https://www.uni-bremen.de/mair/program).

The seminar supports MA International Relations students in the process of conceiving, designing, and writing the thesis, complementing the input they receive from their supervisors. The thesis seminar consists of three workshops: In the first workshop students present their thesis topic and initial ideas about how to tackle it. The second workshop gives students an opportunity to present and discuss their fully elaborated research design, i.e. precise statements of their (final) research question, its (normative, scientific, or practical) relevance, its place in the literature, their working hypothesis (or hypotheses), the role of theory in their study, the methods they are employing and the reasons for choosing them, the data they are using, etc. Finally, the third workshop is devoted to discussing results of students’ investigation on the basis of a “writing sample”, i.e. a draft of the introduction or of a key chapter. In each workshop students receive feedback from the instructors and their fellow students helping them to identify problems in their arguments and possible solutions to these problems.

Students can obtain 3 credits. For details on the seminar requirements see the program website (https://www.uni-bremen.de/mair/program).

The seminar looks at war and other forms of large-scale political violence from a normative point of view. In the first part of the seminar we will discuss standard just war theory and its main opponents (pacifism, realism). In the second part of the seminar we will learn about more recent developments in just war thinking including attempts to extend the reach of the normative framework to non-paradigmatic contexts such as terrorism or to technology-driven changes in the nature of warfare.

The class scrutinizes the most influential development theories since World War II, among them modernization theory, dependency theory, neoliberalism and post-development theory. These concepts are linked to particular practices, such as “white elephant” projects that aim to provide a shortcut to progress. It also looks at the regular repackaging of development cooperation as something more effective than “to give man a fish”. Contemporary emphasis on minimal welfare provisions for the absolute poor is contrasted with neo-modern investments into roads, railways and raw materials. Besides establishing an overview over the field, the course aims at a deeper understanding of the theoretical foundations, the history, and the different approaches towards development as an international endeavour.

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Wed. 12:00 - 14:00 FVG O0150 (Seminarraum) (2 Teaching hours per week)

The Middle East and North Africa, SWANA, is of great strategic importance, as it has a large part of the world's oil reserve, home to world’s sacred sites, and is located at the crossroads of important trade routes. There are important issues in the SWANA that come from the past and give the current parameters to the region in general. The Palestine-Israel issue, the water crisis, the bloody rivalries of the regional states, the democratization process and the sectarian wars are the main concerns in the region. It has not always been easy to change the old order in the SWANA. The region has been shaken by serious political crises and social upheavals recently. Youth, women and social media have impacted the formation of these social movements. Recent developments and changes in the region prompted many to rethink the region and look at the ongoing events from different angles. In this context, this seminar series will be organized online for those interested in the field in order to better analyse the change processes and transformations in the SWANA. The course will last for 14 weeks and different topics related to the region will be discussed each week.

08-26-MA-GS-2Photovoice (in English)

Blockveranstaltung (Teaching)
ECTS: 3

Photovoice is a participatory and activating research method which currently gains in popularity. It is part of a larger array of community-based research and integrates subjects in the research itself through methods of photography and focus groups etc. In cooperation with the network for European Social Work YES Forum, I offer a three-day intensive training to learn the method photovoice. This international training will provide the opportunity to students from diverse European countries to meet and learn together, including hands-on empirical implementation. Furthermore, students will have the possibility to travel to either Italy or Austria and come together with practitioners of youth social work, non-formal education, and other students. Thus, the trainings will be held in English and students need to be travelling as well. Since this is funded through Erasmus+, costs for participation, travel, accommodation, and food are covered.
The course requires some prior methods training, hence it is open only to Master students.
Costs for participation, travel, accommodation, and food will be covered thanks to Erasmus+ funding. Any other expenses need to be self-financed.
As there is a limited number of places, students that want to attend one of the trainings need to hand in a motivation letter describing why/how the method of photovoice benefits their academic work and studies. This letter should be sent to fbesche@uni-bremen.de and indicate for which of the trainings the student is applying. The deadline for the motivation letter is April 15th. Decisions on attendance will be made shortly after that deadline.

Termine:
Mandatory preparation training (in Bremen): tbd

Training 1: 23-25 May (Arrival on 22/05, Departure on 25/05) in Viareggio, Italy
Training 2: 04.-06. July (Arrival on 03/07, Departure on 07/07) in Vienna, Austria
Please note: you will participate to one of the two trainings only, as they are identical.

One of the most recognizable examples of morality policy regulation, the issue of access to abortion remains controversial in most societies. It has been sparking popular mobilization in Europe and the Americas, engaging both pro-abortion as well as anti-abortion activists. While most countries have pursued a road to permissiveness in the last decades (Nebel and Hurka 2014), including Ireland and Argentina, some countries (like Poland) and US states (like Arkansas and Texas) have re-introduced restrictions on access to abortion, effectively banning the procedure (see Calkin and Kaminska 2021). Moreover, countries have displayed different policy responses to the COVID pandemic: in some national contexts access to abortion has been facilitated while other countries have imposed restrictions.
Recent media reports suggest diverging developments:

In this seminar, we will discuss the issues behind morality policy regulation. We will examine how access to abortion has been regulated in selected European and South-American countries as well as in the US, by tracing the developments in abortion governance in comparative perspective.
We will look into the role of different factors and actors in liberalizing and restricting access to abortion: courts, social movements, health professionals, religious institutions (mainly Catholic Church), and – in historical perspective – of the communist and fascist ideologies. Transnational aspects, including cross-border abortion trails and the role of transnational organizations and networks in providing and restricting access to abortion, will also be considered. Finally, we will discuss how the COVID pandemic influenced access to abortion, both within and across national borders.
The seminar is organized in monthly block meetings and will take place online via zoom. Readings and course material will be made available on Stud.IP.
Depending on their needs, individual students can earn between 3 and 9 ECTS for the seminar. The course requirements will be adjusted accordingly.

Parenthood (or the pursuit thereof) remains one of the defining aspects in the lives of many individuals and couples across Europe. At the same time, voluntarily childlessness is on the rise in a number of EU countries, driven e.g. by changing lifestyles but also considerations about climate change. The understanding of parenthood and its different facets differs across the European societies. In this seminar, we will rely on an interdisciplinary approach and perspectives from different policy fields to address – among others – the following questions:
• What fertility rates and the resulting demographic trends can be observed across Europe?
• How do national regulatory frameworks approach parenthood? Who – according to the national laws – has the ‘right’ to become a parent in different countries? Which groups are encouraged and discouraged to have children? (e.g. heterosexual couples? Same-sex couples? Ethnic minorities?)
• If faced with infertility, which ways to parenthood (e.g. assisted reproductive technologies, surrogacy) are seen as acceptable and financially supported by public policies?
• What are the social characteristics of individuals who decide to have children?
• Once pregnant, what type and quality of care can women expect from the public healthcare system? Where can they give birth and how? Which professionals will assist them?
• Once the child is born, who is expected to take care of it, and who actually does? Which public policies are put in place to support parents? Can parents rely on maternal, paternal and parental leaves? How long and how generous are these leaves? Can the parents count on access to public childcare? Do they receive financial support?
• How different factors (e.g. culture, religion, historical legacies, ethno-nationalist ideologies) influence these norms and policies?
• How do these norms and policies seem to be affecting fertility rates and demographic trends in Europe?
The seminar is organized in monthly block meetings and will take place online via zoom. Readings and course material will be made available on Stud.IP.
Depending on their needs, individual students can earn between 3 and 9 ECTS for the seminar. The course requirements will be adjusted accordingly.

We would all associate the labour movement with "Soliarity" as a founding principle. However, with increasing globalisation, the question arises which forms of solidarity emerge in a transnational arena, respectively between organisations and workers of different countries. To answer these questions we both look at institutionalised forms of solidarity in the European Union and their impact on for example the introduction of a European minimum wage. But we also discuss more spontaneous acts of solidarity in food-delivery services, logistics and the automotive industry. Moreover, we exercise scientific writing discussing how to write a research proprosal.

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:

Long-term care describes the need for assistance with daily living – for instance, showering, eating, or cleaning – due to physical and/or mental impairment. Compared to social risks such as sickness or loss of income due to work injuries or old-age, long-term care is a rather novel and emerging field of social policy making. This novelty makes it a challenging but also highly interesting and relevant field of welfare state studies. The largest group in need of long-term care are old-aged people. Therefore, with the global trend of population ageing, the demand and the need for public policies addressing long-term care is increasing not only in Europe but also in other parts of the world.
Additionally, traditional care arrangements where (mostly) women take informally care of family members are increasingly at odds with rising female labour market participation, mobility, and feminist ideas.
In the seminar we will review and discuss the developments in long-term care policies from a global perspective. We will start off with defining long-term care as a social policy field and contemplate its historical emergence as a welfare state “latecomer”. During the seminar, we will take a closer look at the key dimensions of long-term care systems and compare different types of systems: How are long-term care systems regulated and financed, and what are the challenges in the provision of long-term care? What differences exist between regions and countries and how can these differences be explained? Furthermore, we will also highlight a selection of current global trends such as care migration, marketization of care, the changing role of families and the way international interdependencies shape national long-term care policies.

Healthcare systems account for an average of 10% of GDP spending in EU countries. As such, spending on healthcare it is one of the most important social policy items in the national budgets in Europe. The importance of well-functioning healthcare systems has become more evident than ever during the current COVID019 pandemic. But, obviously, also in less dramatic circumstances healthcare systems are crucial to the well-being of the population. Yet, EU healthcare systems differ greatly in how they are financed and regulated, and how provision of services is organized. As a result, the ability to address the needs of the population also varies.
In this seminar, we will comparatively study the EU healthcare systems to understand these differences, and the reasons behind them. We will use interdisciplinary lenses and perspectives from different policy fields to address – among others – the following topics:
• Main dimensions of healthcare systems: financing, provision and regulation
• Historical developments in healthcare systems in European regions: Western, Southern and Central-Eastern Europe
• Healthcare typologies: are they useful? Why are there so many different ones?
• Political economy of healthcare: What shapes health(care) policy?
• Healthcare professionals: professional organizations, provider levels, the role of doctors in regulating healthcare systems
• Access to healthcare: regulatory aspects and financial incentives shaping entry and reception of care as well as effective access or actual ability of patients to avail themselves of healthcare provision
• Unmet health needs in European healthcare systems
• Patients’ preferences and satisfaction
• The role of the European Union in national healthcare systems, including in the COVID-19 pandemic
• The role of other International Organizations in shaping healthcare systems in Europe
• Healthcare across borders: cross-border care for patients; migration of healthcare professionals and brain drain
The seminar is organized in monthly block meetings and will take place online via zoom. Readings and course material will be made available on Stud.IP.

Comparative welfare state research has for a long time been centred on welfare states of the Global North. However, in recent years social policy arrangements in the Global South are increasingly studied as well. In this seminar, we will shed light on some of the key questions that arise in this regard: Which developments have shaped social policy-making in the Global South? What does social policy look like if we include policy instruments and ideas from Latin American, Asian or African countries? How are social policy developments in different countries and regions connected, and which role do transnational factors play here? And finally: Which theoretical approaches can we rely on to study social policy in the Global South?

The course language is English. Information on course structure and requirements will be provided in the first session.

Parenthood (or the pursuit thereof) remains one of the defining aspects in the lives of many individuals and couples across Europe. At the same time, voluntarily childlessness is on the rise in a number of EU countries, driven e.g. by changing lifestyles but also considerations about climate change. The understanding of parenthood and its different facets differs across the European societies. In this seminar, we will rely on an interdisciplinary approach and perspectives from different policy fields to address – among others – the following questions:
• What fertility rates and the resulting demographic trends can be observed across Europe?
• How do national regulatory frameworks approach parenthood? Who – according to the national laws – has the ‘right’ to become a parent in different countries? Which groups are encouraged and discouraged to have children? (e.g. heterosexual couples? Same-sex couples? Ethnic minorities?)
• If faced with infertility, which ways to parenthood (e.g. assisted reproductive technologies, surrogacy) are seen as acceptable and financially supported by public policies?
• What are the social characteristics of individuals who decide to have children?
• Once pregnant, what type and quality of care can women expect from the public healthcare system? Where can they give birth and how? Which professionals will assist them?
• Once the child is born, who is expected to take care of it, and who actually does? Which public policies are put in place to support parents? Can parents rely on maternal, paternal and parental leaves? How long and how generous are these leaves? Can the parents count on access to public childcare? Do they receive financial support?
• How different factors (e.g. culture, religion, historical legacies, ethno-nationalist ideologies) influence these norms and policies?
• How do these norms and policies seem to be affecting fertility rates and demographic trends in Europe?
The seminar is organized in monthly block meetings and will take place online via zoom. Readings and course material will be made available on Stud.IP.
Depending on their needs, individual students can earn between 3 and 9 ECTS for the seminar. The course requirements will be adjusted accordingly.

We would all associate the labour movement with "Soliarity" as a founding principle. However, with increasing globalisation, the question arises which forms of solidarity emerge in a transnational arena, respectively between organisations and workers of different countries. To answer these questions we both look at institutionalised forms of solidarity in the European Union and their impact on for example the introduction of a European minimum wage. But we also discuss more spontaneous acts of solidarity in food-delivery services, logistics and the automotive industry. Moreover, we exercise scientific writing discussing how to write a research proprosal.

Seminar (Teaching)

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Thu. 12:00 - 14:00 External location: Unicom 3.3380 (2 Teaching hours per week)

Long-term care describes the need for assistance with daily living – for instance, showering, eating, or cleaning – due to physical and/or mental impairment. Compared to social risks such as sickness or loss of income due to work injuries or old-age, long-term care is a rather novel and emerging field of social policy making. This novelty makes it a challenging but also highly interesting and relevant field of welfare state studies. The largest group in need of long-term care are old-aged people. Therefore, with the global trend of population ageing, the demand and the need for public policies addressing long-term care is increasing not only in Europe but also in other parts of the world.
Additionally, traditional care arrangements where (mostly) women take informally care of family members are increasingly at odds with rising female labour market participation, mobility, and feminist ideas.
In the seminar we will review and discuss the developments in long-term care policies from a global perspective. We will start off with defining long-term care as a social policy field and contemplate its historical emergence as a welfare state “latecomer”. During the seminar, we will take a closer look at the key dimensions of long-term care systems and compare different types of systems: How are long-term care systems regulated and financed, and what are the challenges in the provision of long-term care? What differences exist between regions and countries and how can these differences be explained? Furthermore, we will also highlight a selection of current global trends such as care migration, marketization of care, the changing role of families and the way international interdependencies shape national long-term care policies.

Healthcare systems account for an average of 10% of GDP spending in EU countries. As such, spending on healthcare it is one of the most important social policy items in the national budgets in Europe. The importance of well-functioning healthcare systems has become more evident than ever during the current COVID019 pandemic. But, obviously, also in less dramatic circumstances healthcare systems are crucial to the well-being of the population. Yet, EU healthcare systems differ greatly in how they are financed and regulated, and how provision of services is organized. As a result, the ability to address the needs of the population also varies.
In this seminar, we will comparatively study the EU healthcare systems to understand these differences, and the reasons behind them. We will use interdisciplinary lenses and perspectives from different policy fields to address – among others – the following topics:
• Main dimensions of healthcare systems: financing, provision and regulation
• Historical developments in healthcare systems in European regions: Western, Southern and Central-Eastern Europe
• Healthcare typologies: are they useful? Why are there so many different ones?
• Political economy of healthcare: What shapes health(care) policy?
• Healthcare professionals: professional organizations, provider levels, the role of doctors in regulating healthcare systems
• Access to healthcare: regulatory aspects and financial incentives shaping entry and reception of care as well as effective access or actual ability of patients to avail themselves of healthcare provision
• Unmet health needs in European healthcare systems
• Patients’ preferences and satisfaction
• The role of the European Union in national healthcare systems, including in the COVID-19 pandemic
• The role of other International Organizations in shaping healthcare systems in Europe
• Healthcare across borders: cross-border care for patients; migration of healthcare professionals and brain drain
The seminar is organized in monthly block meetings and will take place online via zoom. Readings and course material will be made available on Stud.IP.

08-26-MA-GS-2Photovoice (in English)

Blockveranstaltung (Teaching)
ECTS: 3

Photovoice is a participatory and activating research method which currently gains in popularity. It is part of a larger array of community-based research and integrates subjects in the research itself through methods of photography and focus groups etc. In cooperation with the network for European Social Work YES Forum, I offer a three-day intensive training to learn the method photovoice. This international training will provide the opportunity to students from diverse European countries to meet and learn together, including hands-on empirical implementation. Furthermore, students will have the possibility to travel to either Italy or Austria and come together with practitioners of youth social work, non-formal education, and other students. Thus, the trainings will be held in English and students need to be travelling as well. Since this is funded through Erasmus+, costs for participation, travel, accommodation, and food are covered.
The course requires some prior methods training, hence it is open only to Master students.
Costs for participation, travel, accommodation, and food will be covered thanks to Erasmus+ funding. Any other expenses need to be self-financed.
As there is a limited number of places, students that want to attend one of the trainings need to hand in a motivation letter describing why/how the method of photovoice benefits their academic work and studies. This letter should be sent to fbesche@uni-bremen.de and indicate for which of the trainings the student is applying. The deadline for the motivation letter is April 15th. Decisions on attendance will be made shortly after that deadline.

Termine:
Mandatory preparation training (in Bremen): tbd

Training 1: 23-25 May (Arrival on 22/05, Departure on 25/05) in Viareggio, Italy
Training 2: 04.-06. July (Arrival on 03/07, Departure on 07/07) in Vienna, Austria
Please note: you will participate to one of the two trainings only, as they are identical.

Dates:
weekly (starts in week: 1) Thu. 08:00 - 10:00 UNICOM 3.0220 Seminarraum 4 UNICOM 3.0230 Seminarraum 3 (2 Teaching hours per week)

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.

weekly (starts in week: 1) Wed. 12:00 - 14:00 UNICOM 7.4680 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 7) (2 Teaching hours per week)

This seminar is organized around a guiding question: How do societies around the world respond to the economic ramifications of the coronavirus shock? To interrogate the various facets of this problem, we draw on the concept of “moral economy”, a line of theory and empirical analysis elaborated in diverse disciplines such as sociology, anthropology, economic history, and social history that is concerned with how ordinary people invoke moral norms and social commitments to reason about fairness and justice in welfare societies and, by doing so, make specific claims on the state. We explore how the pandemic lays bare the structural inequalities of capitalist societies around globe and how moral economic thinking can provide the conceptual tools to study patterns of popular meaning-making and strategies of action in this context. The seminar fosters students’ expertise and skills in research areas such as inequality and welfare states, economic sociology, the sociology of work, and social movement studies.

The thematic focus of this seminar is on intergenerational transmission, understood as social inheritance of characteristics of parents on their children. Intergenerational transmission research on behavior, attitudes and values has a long tradition in the social sciences. There is rich literature which can be differentiated into (1) transmission of parents’ socioeconomic status to their children, (2) transmission of parents’ behaviors (such as partnership and family behaviors) and (3) intergenerational transmission of attitudes and value orientations (such as gender role attitudes and family values). In this course, we will address all three areas. Students will be introduced to current research and enabled to gain a deeper understanding of transmission processes. The language of instruction will be English, discussions and written contributions can be in English or German. Good working proficiency in English and familiarity with sociological concepts and methods is required.
