Spring Conference of the DGS Section "Social Inequality and Social Stratification"

GESIS MANNHEIM, 22.-24.03.2023


Current Research Projects on Social Stratification and Social Inequality

Why do social stratification mechanisms retain their formative power even during economic or pandemic constraints? Which inequality dimensions and disparities gain or lose influence over time? How do inequalities evolve in our society compared to other societies? What internal differentiation in our society is necessary for understanding inequality? What consequences of inequality do we diagnose for society and its individuals?

The DGS (German Sociological Association) Section "Social Inequality and Social Stratification" invites you to its spring conference 2023, which is intentionally kept thematically open. It continues a tradition of several years and provides an opportunity to present more current research projects than is possible at the biennial Sociology Congress. We welcome submissions presenting theoretically novel approaches to the emergence, consolidation, or change of inequalities, employing innovative methodological research designs, using new data sources, or reporting exciting findings from ongoing research. Explicitly invited are presentations using a variety of methodological and theoretical research approaches. Regarding content, submissions should offer a connection to comparative social stratification and inequality analysis, focusing on the causes and/or consequences of social inequalities. Content that links to other sociological topics and disciplines is also welcome.

The conference language will be German. However, English contributions are welcome. We ask you to send in your abstract (in German or English, maximum one page) by January 15, 2023 to: tagung-mannheim-2023(at)soziale-ungleichheit(dot)de

Organisation: Reinhard Pollak (reinhard.pollak(at)gesis(dot)org), Nora Müller (nora.müller(at)gesis(dot)org) and Corinna Kleinert (corinna.kleinert(at)lifbi(dot)de
