Prof. Dr. Talja Blokland was granted a "Humboldt OPEN Freiraum" and will therefore not offer any teaching or supervision during the summer semester 2021. As part of her project "Städtisches Leben Während Corona im Dialog" ("Urban Life during Covid-19 in Dialogue") she will dedicate herself to scientific communication and the dialogue with experts - citizens and professionals - in order to feed back the results of her research project 'Städtisches Leben Während Corona' ( to the city. In this period, she will be subtituted by Dr. Nihad El-Kayed and Dr. Christine Barwick.


Talja Bloklands research interests are in social and relational theory, urban sociology, and social policy. In the broad field of urban studies, Blokland is especially interested in urban inequalities and marginalization processes, place making, neighborhood change and neighborhood cohesion.
