Dates:May 27-28, 2010
Description:Conference of the German Sociological Association "The return of class society? Revisiting the relationship between research on social inequality and social theory"
Location:Essen, Zeche Zollverein in Essen, Germany
Subject:Debates about the end or the revitalization of class society respectively are relevant both for the analysis of social structure and for social theory. The conference will focus on a number of questions: - What is the social basis of social inequalities and in what way do they become relevant for theorizing about society? What is the impact of discourses about social inequality? - How can the relationship between social inequality and functional differentiation be understood? What forms do socio-structural and cultural differences take in particular social fields? Do forms of Ś“cultural hegemonyŚ” transverse social fields? - Were Ś“oldŚ” layers and milieus such as middle class, working class, upper class transformed? Can distinctly Ś“newŚ” classes and/or milieus be observed? - Is the Ś“class questionŚ” global? Can new class constellations be identified in a transnational perspective? How can we develop a global scope in the analysis of social structure? [gemŐ_ŐŔ den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
