1.07.084 Arab Winter - Politics in the Middle East (Lehrsprache Englisch, Prüfungsleistung Deutsch oder Englisch) Monday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 12/04/21)

Description:
Recent political unrest in the Arab world led to the fall of robust and powerful regimes. Calls for freedom, democracy, and political reforms engulfed the region in a sea of protests that forced Tunisia’s President Zine Eddine Ben Ali to flee, toppled the regime of Hosni Mubarak in Egypt, and led to the death of Moammar Gadhafi in Libya. Demands for change led to both peaceful protests and armed confrontations in Libya, Yemen, Syria, Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain and across the Arab world. Social movements are often caused by the convergence of social, economic and political oppression and hardship. Indeed, this has been the case in the Arab world, where government corruption, elite self-interest, and economic inequalities are evident. In this class, we examine the uprisings in the Middle East generally and review cases through interactive discussions and course assignments. Analyzing the cases individually provides a context for understanding the conditions that led to civil unrest and exploring the new power structure in the Arab world. The cases of the Arab Spring vary widely, and the students will consider common questions to create a usable frame of reference: Why have people organized? How have people organized into new political groups and organizations or joined existing ones? What is the outcome in each case? And, what will the future bring in each country? By the conclusion of the course, students will have a strong grasp of the social and political conditions that led to the Arab Spring, current dynamics, and possible outcomes. This course can be regarded as an introductory class. Recent political unrest in the Arab world led to the fall of robust and powerful regimes.

1.07.0621 Sociology of the European Integration (Lehrsprache Englisch) Monday: 14:00 - 16:00, weekly (from 12/04/21)

Description:
The economic, legal and political integration of Europe is at the core of the process of European integration. In addition to the political transformations induced by the creation, enlargement and deepening of the European Union particularly since the 1990s, European integration has given rise to a fundamental transformation of social relations and the life worlds of people. While in the postwar period, daily life took place primarily in the framework of nation-states, the opening of hitherto largely nationally regulated and limited social fields and spaces has fostered increasing cross-border contacts and a stronger transnationalisation of social interactions, attitudes and interpretations. This transnationalisation of social fields and spaces as a result of European integration lies at the heart of the research on horizontal Europeanization and also of this seminar. In the first part of the class, a broad overview on the process of European integration, major EU institutions and policy fields will be given. In the second part, horizontal Europeanisation processes in different social fields are analysed, as well as the related conflicts and bargaining relations and their impact on patterns of social inequality. Complementary to the Europeanisation of social fields, the Europeanisation of social space (P. Bourdieu) will be analysed, taking as an example the transnationalisation of everyday practices, collective memories and reference groups of social inequalities. This raises the question how field-specific and space-specific Europeanisation processes are related. In addition, different modes of Europeanization (power/coercion, competition, communication and cooperation) will be analysed. Given the profound crisis of European integration in the wake of the Euro crisis, the final part of the course will emphasise the analysis of conflicts and tensions between national and European regulations, identifications, and patterns of integration and social inequality.

Description:
Geography as a discipline has developed from undertaking fieldwork. Geographers travel – both virtually, and in person – to different places (or ‘fields’) to research and understand them. Geographers also think critically about the power dynamics of going into different research fields and how they have impacted the people and places where they conduct their work. This course deploys seminar-based and practical activities to build from the research design knowledge that is introduced in the course Designing Fieldwork for Social Geographers, which runs concurrently. The primary aim of this course is to design in practice and conduct a research project based on a chosen city location – either Liverpool, New York or Auckland. Seminar sessions will comprise practical group tasks such as writing research questions, selecting and justifying methods, piloting those methods, and attending group supervision sessions to develop research plans. Week 12 of the course schedule will be dedicated to ‘fieldwork’ days where students will work as a group to collect and then analyse their data on their chosen city. Dedicated workshops will facilitate further honing of the analysis techniques and assessment writing. The ideas, initiative and energy for the research project must come from students but all groups will be fully supported by a research supervisor and will receive feedback on research proposals and presentations prior to the practical undertaking of the data collection and during the analysis. The module assessment relies on participation in the practical activities and students are strongly advised to attend all seminar and practical sessions in order to maximise their marks.

1.07.0691 Politikfeldanalyse: Digital Governance - Doing research using digital trace data Friday: 10:00 - 12:00, weekly (from 16/04/21)

Description:
The wave of digitalization has changed the way of governance. Public authorities utilize their online channels in diverse way, e.g., announcing the policy, participating in public discourse, communicating with public etc. This course introduces technical skills to collect and analyze such digital footprints. More concretely, this course introduces Twitter API and provides multiple examples of collecting and analyzing Twitter data in R. The course will start with general introduction of Twitter's API, available data and limitations. Subsequently, participants will learn how to collect diverse types of Twitter data (e.g., user timelines, tweets including certain keywords). To analyze collecting data, the course will discuss summary statistics of interested features, text analysis and simple network analysis (e.g. retweet network). Along with the data analysis, diverse possibilities for visualization will be demonstrated as well. During the course, students collect and analyze Twitter data based on their own research question (individually or in a small group). At the end of the course, students submit a report that summarize the process of data collection and analysis results. The course is held in English. Previous experience in R is preferable but not required. The wave of digitalization has changed the way of governance.

1.07.211 Schwerpunkt Arbeitsmarkt: Income and labour market inequalities in a comparative perspective (Lehrsprache Englisch, Prüfungsleistung Deutsch oder Englisch) Monday: 12:00 - 14:00, weekly (from 12/04/21)

Description:
In industrialized societies, participation in social life is closely linked to income from work and thus access to the labor market. The Master module "Labor Market and Inequality" starts with the question which occupational structures characterize the German and European labor market and where dividing lines between "outsiders" and "insiders" on the labor market run. This is partcularly relevant for the egalitarian employment regimes of Europe. In the first part of the seminar, the focus will be on approaches to and empirical research on the "inequality of income opportunities". Afterwards, interrelations between selected social groups (long-term unemployed, young people, migrants and women) and relevant institutional conditions (social security systems and activation policies, education systems and protection clauses, family policies, technological developments and social redistribution policies) are discussed (Part 2). In the complementary workshop, selected topics of the seminar will be expanded. Students will familiarize themselves with relevant data sets and carry out their own empirical analyses using the EU-SILC or other comparative datasets.

1.07.068 Designing fieldwork for social geographers (Social Geography, Lehrsprache Englisch) Tuesday: 12:00 - 14:00, weekly (from 13/04/21)

Description:
Social geography – the study of space and society – is an applied subject. It examines lived experiences, performances, and practises of power in ‘real world’ settings. Accordingly, fieldwork is essential to geography as a discipline. This course is a research-led elective that provides an opportunity to develop skills in designing research in social geography. Students will deepen their engagement with a substantive conceptual issue in social geography such as place, scale, identity and power; learn how to develop a central research question; and understand how to design appropriate research methods to gather, analyse and present research materials. The course will introduce the choice of city locations (Liverpool, New York and Auckland), outline suggested themes for research, and provide training in project formulation and fieldwork methodologies for social geographers. Students will also be asked to focus on critical aspects for fieldwork, such as ethical practice, and directly engage with the challenges of conducting virtual (or desk-based) fieldwork during a global pandemic. The course is also an introduction to the cities of Liverpool, New York and Auckland and facilitates introduction to several major geographical themes including landscapes of power and capitalism, colonial legacies and global interconnectivity, and tourism and sustainability. This syllabus directly supports the course Virtual Fieldclass, a practical fieldclass-style course which runs concurrently. The module assessment relies on participation in the practical activities and students are strongly advised to attend all seminar and practical sessions in order to maximise their marks.
