53129 - In-work Poverty in Europe and in the US

Colloquium | Tue 2pm-4pm, weekly | Lecture Format: Digital | Teaching Person: Emanuela Struffolino

Working poor are individuals who are gainfully employed, but their household income is below the poverty threshold. Therefore, in-work poverty arises at intersection of labor market and family dynamics: on the one hand, individual resources are related to the likelihood of experiencing unfavorable labor market arrangements leading to poverty (e.g. low-wage or temporary contracts); on the other hand, specific family structure or family-life-course transitions (e.g., the birth of a child or divorce) are associated with different levels of households’ economic wellbeing. The seminar will examine how and why in-work poverty became a critical issue in the US and in Europe. We will first discuss the theoretical and methodological challenges of defining and measuring it in-work poverty. Second, we will consider the prevalence of in-work poverty over time and across specific social groups in different welfare and labor market regimes. Third, we will assess how living in a working poor household affects outcomes in other life domains. Finally, we will compare the policy response to in-work poverty across countries.

53069 - Introduction to Sequence Analysis

Blockveranstaltung | Mon 10am-1pm, block course | Veranstaltungsformat: Digital | Lehrperson: Emanuela Struffolino

This seminar introduces sequence analysis for social science research. Sequence analysis is a set of tools to analyze sequences of categorical states that represent processes that unfold over time. These tools were first introduced to social sciences in the form of optimal matching analysis by Andrew Abbott who imported this approach from biology and computer science. Sequence analysis has attracted increasing attention in the social sciences for the analysis of longitudinal life-course data: labor market careers, transitions to adulthood, or family formation. More recently, sequences are scrutinized in other fields of social sciences such as geography, archaeology, and economics This workshop covers longitudinal data management (only briefly) and basic techniques of sequence analysis to (1) describe and (2) visualize sequences, (3) to identify typical patterns among a set of sequences using cluster analysis, and (4) to examine the antecedents and consequences of these patterns. Recent approaches combining sequence analysis with event history analysis and propensity score matching will be also discussed. All analytical steps are demonstrated with hands-on examples using R (TraMineR and ancillary packages). No prior knowlegde of R is necessary.

 

53046 - Gender Inequality in Education and Employment

Seminar | Wed 2pm-4pm, weekly | Lecture Format: Digital | Teaching Person: Emanuela Struffolino

The seminar will offer a comprehensive understanding of the role of gender inequality for education and employment from a social stratification perspective. Women’s roles have tremendously changed over the last century. In terms of educational attainment women have caught up to men and, in many countries, even overtaken them. Female students have long obtained higher grades than their male peers, they display more positive attitudes towards school, and have higher educational aspirations.

BA-Lecture accompanying the courses | Tue 10am-12pm, weekly | Lecture Format: Digital | Teaching Persons: Anette Fasang und Gökçe Yurdakul

Contact: Gabi Sonnenberg und Asal Shokooie

How are populations changing and which new dynamics are we observing in terms of family diversity, migration and aging? Which pressing policy challenges are societies facing? This lecture introduces BA students to social demography and family sociology. Topics cover an introduction to family theories, different methodological approaches for studying family change, and the foundations of social demography including demographic methods. Along the lecture students will become familiar with divers theoretical approaches and facts about families and populations in (East and West) Germany and place them in European and global comparison. We will also discuss normative and ethical concerns in the study of families and populations.

53044 - Familie in Europa

Seminar | Tue 8am-10am, weekly | Uni 3b, R. 004 | Teaching Person: Maria Hornung

Dieses Seminar ermöglicht eine Vertiefung im Bereich Familiensoziologie. Nach einer historischen Einführung in Familiendynamiken in einem europäischen Kontext, werden grundlegende Konzepte zu einer vergleichenden Familiensoziologie durchgenommen. In dem nächsten Block werden unterschiedliche Familienprozesse wie Partnerwahl, Fertilität, Trennung/Scheidung, intergenerationale Beziehungen behandelt. Hier werden sowohl der länderspezifische Kontext in Hinblick auf z.B. Familienpolitik als auch individuelle sozioökonomische Faktoren (Migrationshintergrund, Bildung, Einkommen/Erwerbstätigkeit) einbezogen. Der Fokus des Seminars liegt auf neuerer quantitativer familiensoziologischer Forschung.

 

53118 - Die Regulierung von Intimität und Reproduktion im internationalen Vergleich

Lektüreseminar | Wed 10am - 12pm, weekly | Uni 3b, R. 001 | Teaching Person: Hannah Zagel

Der weitreichende Wandel von Intimität und Reproduktion seit Mitte des letzten Jahrhunderts eröffnet neue Spannungsfelder für die Frage nach der Rolle staatlicher Regulierung des Privaten. Der so genannte familienstrukturelle Wandel und die Liberalisierung von Sexualität gehen mit einer Zunahme von Lebensformen und Beziehungen jenseits der heterosexuellen Normalfamilie einher, denen oft nicht dieselben sozialen Rechte zugestanden werden. Technologische Entwicklungen in der Geburtsvorsorge und der Reproduktionsmedizin ermöglichen neue Pfade der Familienplanung und Kontrolle über Reproduktion, die mit unterschiedlichen Zugangsbarrieren versehen sind. Auch werfen sie tiefgreifende ethisch-moralische Fragen auf, die in sozialen und politischen Sphären ausgehandelt werden. In diesem Seminar werden wir untersuchen, welche Ansätze der Regulierung europäische Staaten in diesen Handlungsfeldern verfolgen. Dafür werden wir zunächst theoretische Zugänge zur Analyse von Intimität, Reproduktion und deren Regulierung erarbeiten. Im weiteren Verlauf werden wir uns einzelnen Regulierungsfeldern zuwenden. Hier werden wir vor allem (quantitative und qualitative) empirische Arbeiten lesen, die einerseits Erklärungsansätze für Länderunterschiede in staatlichen Maßnahmen und Gesetzen im Bereich der Intimität und Reproduktion testen und andererseits ihre sozialen Auswirkungen beleuchten.
