Objectives The seminar will deepen work with sociological theories. Different theories and sociological debates and how they assess social developments will be analysed. The seminar will teach theoretical work as an interpretive and abstracting process. It will show how theories are applied to understand and interpret social phenomena. Working on sociological concepts and theories will be presented as an important and independent step in the process of research. This will be made clear by focussing on specific theoretical debates about empirical as well as theoretical questions or developments. A focus will be put on specific problems of social change and conflicts.
