1.07.063 Sociology of the European Integration (Lehrsprache Englisch) Montag: 10:00 - 12:00, wöchentlich (ab 01.04.2019)

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.

1.07.211 Schwerpunkt Arbeitsmarkt: Income and labour market inequalities in a comparative perspective (Lehrsprache Englisch, Prüfungsleistung Deutsch oder Englisch) Montag: 12:00 - 14:00, wöchentlich (ab 01.04.2019)

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 (Wed 12 a.m. - 2 p.m., room A04 1-139), 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.

1.07.241 Freiwählbares Modul: Introduction to Network Analysis (Lehrsprache Englisch, Prüfungsleistung Deutsch oder Englisch) Mittwoch: 10:00 - 12:00, wöchentlich (ab 03.04.2019)

Description:
This course offers a hands-on introduction to the concepts and methods of social network analysis (SNA) using the statistical programming environment R. Depending on research interests and data availability, researchers commonly look at networks of different sizes and degrees of complexity. In this class we will learn about tools to analyze these various types of networks. This will include egocentric networks (e.g. own family and friendship network) and complete networks of various sizes: e.g. friendship ties in a school class, informal communication networks in organizations, and large-scale, complex networks like co-citation networks of scientists or interaction networks on social networking websites. The course will combine lecture/seminar style presentations of the instructor with lab sessions in which students work on empirical exercises using R.

1.07.0631 Sociology of the European Integration (Lehrsprache Englisch) Donnerstag: 10:00 - 12:00, wöchentlich (ab 04.04.2019)

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.

This transnationalisation of social fields and spaces as a result of European integration lies at the heart of the research on horizontal Europeanization. In this seminar, we take a closer look at the concept of Euroscepticism as an individual attitude.

1.07.251 Frei wählbares Modul: Introduction to digital trace data in social science Termine am Donnerstag. 11.04. 12:00 - 14:00, Freitag. 10.05. 14:00 - 18:00, Samstag. 11.05. 09:00 - 15:00, Freitag. 07.06. 14:00 - 18:0 ...(mehr)
Description:
Nowadays, diverse kinds of data with a large volume have become available to researchers. Online digital trace data in particular has a great potential for new approaches to social science questions. This course focuses on digital trace data extraction and introduces network analysis which are typical analytical tools for digital trace data. In the first block, students will learn how to collect and manage digital trace data by using Python. In the second block, students learn basic network theories and do exercise to analyze exemplary digital trace data using the network-theoretic concepts such as centralities and clustering. In the third block, the course introduces co-occurrence networks and the exponential random graph model (ERGM). At the end of the course, each student submits a short paper which demonstrates network analyses using digital trace data collected for themselves. Please bring your own notebook. Alternatively, you can use a computer from the laboratory.
