08-29-GS-10Introduction to Sociology in English / online (in englischer Sprache)
[Soziologie auf Englisch - keine Angst vor englischen Texten]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Mi 08:00 - 12:00 (4 SWS)

This course is a seminar that introduces students to the study of Sociology. Sociology is the study of societies and the way social institutions structure how individuals live as well as the way individuals shape those same institutions. We will address questions like: What is a society and how have societies developed over time? How and why are different societies more or less equal? Does it still make sense to speak of social classes? How have family structures changed in our societies and does it make sense to speak of the family instead of families? This course gives an introduction to the field of sociology and seeks to provide the students with the tools to elaborate on these and many more questions independently. We will focus on a broad range of theory and research showing how sociologists think and study societies and their institutions.

The COVID-19 crisis has a massive impact on the labour market, however, it does not affect all workers equally, but reveals significant inequalities; at the same time, social and labour market policies play a central role in coping with the crisis. This applies both to existing social protection systems and to crisis-related expansion, reforms and policy innovations. Starting from the German case, the seminar will examine the effects of the crisis on employment and living conditions of different socio-economic groups and then assess these findings in the light of a comparison with selected European welfare states. In addition, the role of the EU in mitigating the effects of the crisis will be discussed.

08-29-GS-28Internet and Social Media / online (in englischer Sprache)
[Internet und Social Media]

Seminar

Termine:
wöchentlich Do 10:00 - 12:00 (2 SWS)

Since the end of the 20th century, internet and social media fundamentally change interpersonal communication. In the seminar, we survey the different platforms with their qualities and their consequences for the social world. This concerns the following questions:
- What are differences between online and offline social life, and do they relate to each other?
- What kinds of internet platforms are there?
- How do internet and social media affect the construction of personal identities and social relationships?
- How does the internet change political communication? Does it foster filter bubbles and echo chambers as drivers of political polarization?
- What are the consequences of internet and social media for social cohesion and divisions, and for the mediated presentation of society and politics?
The seminar primarily discusses recent international studies on different kinds of online communication: social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, online dating, discussion forums, and online gaming. The seminar will be held in English with intensive participation in discussion by the students.

08-29-GS-29"Who cares?! Comparative perspectives on care, gender and migration" / online (in englischer Sprache)
[Who cares?! Vergleichende Perspektiven auf Care-Arbeit, Gender und Migration]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Di 14:00 - 16:00 (2 SWS)

In the seminar „Who cares?! Comparative perspectives on care, gender and migration”, we examine the ever-more relevant topic of transnational care work and its consequences for global inequalities as well as for individual lives. We focus specifically on the connection of theory and practice. We aim to give voice to a variety of perspectives and make sense of those using theoretical insights from sociological, gender, social policy and migration studies. The literature and activities of this course will take us to realities of people across the world and draw linkages between multiple actors and spheres. We also ask what a “care revolution” could look like and how some of the inequalities involved in transnational care work could be addressed. This general studies seminar is recommended for advanced B.A. students and M.A. students. We will use a variety of online tools to create an open, inspiring, and communicative learning environment.

08-29-GS-33Age(ing) and Gender – An intersectional analysis of resources and constrains in old age / online (in englischer Sprache)
[Alter(n) und Geschlecht]

Seminar
ECTS: 3/6

Termine:
wöchentlich Fr 10:00 - 12:00 (2 SWS)

Especially European but also a number of global societies are ageing, which means besides other aspects that the age group old age is growing. This is first of all good news, because more and more people are reaching old age. However, old age means very different things to different groups in society and this entails diverse resources and constrains to live a good life in this life phase. This seminar on age(ing) and gender will introduce you to a number of topics at the intersection of age and gender, but will also discuss other social inequalities.
The first part of the seminar will familiarize you with the sociological study of ageing and gender as well as the theoretical approaches that help to integrate these topics. In the second part we will focus on macro-level outcomes and will explore gender differences in (healthy) life expectancies, financial situations and social class. The third part will discuss meso- and micro- level issues from a gendered perspective, such as work and retirement, caring and social relationships, the ageing body and social images of old people in society. We will close with a discussion on future trends in ageing and gender studies.
Most sessions will take place as online discussions. Three sessions will be organized as small (online) group working weeks, where you prepare small assignments. Please note that most participants of this seminar are non-native speakers and we will allocate some time in understanding the assigned literature.
