08-29-GS-12Economies on life support: The global Covid-19 shock in a moral economy perspective (in englischer Sprache)
[Western and Global Modernity - Post-colonial Sociology?]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 12:00 - 14:00 UNICOM 7.4680 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 7) (2 SWS)

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.

08-29-GS-17Gender Inequality and Stratification (in englischer Sprache)
[Geschlechterungleichheit und soziale Ungleichheit]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 08:00 - 10:00 UNICOM 3.0220 Seminarraum 4 UNICOM 3.0230 Seminarraum 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.

08-29-GS-18Research on Family and Household (in englischer Sprache)
[Familie und Haushalt als Gegenstand sozialwissenschaftlicher Forschung]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 10:00 - 12:00 UNICOM 3.3390 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 3) (2 SWS)

This course will explore sociological concepts and topics within contemporary research on family and household. The intersections between the family and other social institutions will be one component of this course. The development of family forms and diversity of families will be another central topic. We will consider marriage and partner selection in historical context by exploring changes in peoples’ intentions to marry and start families. We will explore the development and the functions of couple relationships as well as the relationships between family members, and examine the meaning of couple and family relationships for broader societal developments and social inequalities. Further, we will acquire an overview of empirical research on families, discuss the role of family policies in contemporary societies, and venture some ideas on the future of families in the 21st century.

08-29-GS-21Families and Intergenerational Transmission (in englischer Sprache)
[Familien und Intergenerationale Transmission]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 12:00 - 14:00 UNICOM 7.4680 (SOCIUM - Mary-Somerville-Str. 7) (2 SWS)

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.

08-29-GS-32Multivariate Research Methods (in englischer Sprache)
[Multivariate Forschungsmethoden]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 12:00 - 14:00 SFG 2060 (2 SWS)

This course will provide an introduction to the logic of statistical control and multivariate statistical models, as they are commonly applied in the social science disciplines. It will emphasize the understanding of statistical concepts and the usage of statistics rather than mathematical formulas. The goals are to enhance the students’ awareness of various methods in design and analysis of various social science problems, introduce students to different methods and techniques for analyzing quantitative data, develop the skills necessary to critically evaluate published work in social sciences, develop students’ skills in modelling and carrying out their own research, learn how to interpret results of statistical analyses, and guide and prepare students for more advanced courses in statistical methods.
