- Conference of the German Sociological Association "The return of class society? Revisiting the relationship between research on social inequality and social theory"

- 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 ??cultural hegemony?? transverse social fields?- Were ??old?? layers and milieus such as middle class, working class, upper class transformed? Can distinctly ??new?? classes and/or milieus be observed?- Is the ??class question?? global? Can new class constellations be identified in a transnational perspective? How can we develop a global scope in the analysis of social structure?[gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
