»Discourse«, »network«, »co-operative action« or »post-ideology« are terms students of sociology and social sciences frequently find themselves confronted with nowadays. Terms that reflect on shifts, divides and transformations within a theoretical landscape that once capable of representing its disciplinary identity with further internal specialization has been struggling to reintegrate its diverging strands.

The Chair of General Sociology and Sociological Theory at the University of Würzburg would like to welcome all interested students in higher education to engage in our Winter Module Course »Unravelling Sociological Theory – New trends and challenges for the 21st century«.

Target group

Higher education students (graduate or undergraduate) neither currently nor previously enrolled at a German University regardless of nationality (Non-German and German)

Course aim

The winter module course of 2022 aims to introduce interested students of the social sciences into the recent theoretical developments and trends in the field of sociological theory and to deliver an overview of its main challenges. In a supportive and stimulating environment for intellectual exchange, we will situate the recent theoretical developments in relation to different traditions and debates. This will strengthen the participants' ability to relate the current tendencies to relevant historical and philosophical contexts.
