Abstract

What exactly is a crowd? How do crowds differ from other large gatherings of people? And how do they transform emotions, politics, or faith? In Crowds, contributors draw on their experiences and expertise to reflect on their encounters with crowds. Each chapter examines a particular crowd or conception of crowdedness to provide an analysis of how, when, where—and with whom—crowds form in different contexts, as well as their purpose and the practical effect the experience has on both the participants and their environment. The wide selection of case studies ranges from the crowds that form every year during the Hajj, to New Year celebrations in China, commuters on the Delhi metro, public prayer in Nigeria, online mobs in Bangladesh, and the crowds that have emerged during protest movements in Thailand and Syria. Crowds makes a key contribution to establishing an anthropological theory of crowds and will be an essential read for both students and researchers.

Abstract

Being young in Italy in times of crisis means living with a mood that oscillates between depression and euphoria. Rather than thinking about the future, which is not known in any way, it is useful to look for some satisfaction in an eternal present time. The Italian young people's lives are suspended, invisible, lost, delayed, resized. They are those of an indefinite youth.

Abstract

"The essays collected in this volume wonder about different aspects of the crisis we are experiencing and discuss the interpretative models best suited to approach them. From the actor's theory to the transition theories; from the degenerations of capitalism and liberalism to the role of Europe; from the social implications of science to the transformations that affect work; from the training to the experiences of the young generations, we have here a path that combines theory and social research, rigorous observations and images of a better world."

Abstract

How is "gender" received by students of educational research, pedagogy and related fields? What are the students' views on gender issues? Based on the observation that interest in gender issues is perceived more as an individual and somewhat anachronistic phenomenon, the empirical study reconstructs the influence of the educational institution university and the study of the specific subject area on students.

Abstract

Was ist die Mitte der Gesellschaft und was erwartet sie von der Zukunft? Wie bewertet sie Politik im Allgemeinen sowie Politiker, politische Prozesse und Entscheidungen im Besonderen? Anhand welcher Maßstäbe fällt sie ihre Urteile? Auf Basis einer umfangreichen qualitativen Erhebung wird die soziale Mitte in dieser Studie erstmals systematisch analysiert. Stine Marg erörtert nicht nur die Fokusgruppe als Methode der Sozialwissenschaft, sondern präsentiert ebenso überraschende Erkenntnisse über die Wertvorstellungen und Erwartungen "der Mitte".

Abstract

Rassismus in der Mitte der Gesellschaft kann weder durch die herkömmlichen Analysen zu Jugendgewalt und individuumszentrierte Deutungen noch durch ein Rassismusverständnis, das sich definitorisch am deutschen Nationalsozialismus orientiert, hinreichend verstanden werden. Die Autorin untersucht ihn dagegen als gesamtgesellschaftliches und in seinen Erscheinungsformen variables Phänomen. Die Studie verbindet Rassismuskonzepte (Hall, Miles, Balibar) mit Bourdieus Theorie sozialer Ungleichheit zu einem Analysemodell des Rassismus als flexibler symbolischer Ressource. Der empirische Teil zeigt an Gruppendiskussionen mit Akademikern und Facharbeitern, wie diese Ressource in Form spezifischer Argumentationsfiguren kommuniziert wird.

Abstract

Sustainability has become a leading principle of social change that combines different objectives – be it green capitalism based on ecological modernization or a socio-ecological transformation that could ring in a post-capitalist era. The social dimensions of sustainability as well as the paradoxes relating to a sustainable development in global capitalism are examined in this programmatic text by Sighard Neckel and his research team in Hamburg. Basic sociological perspectives of sustainability are the subject, as are prospects of concrete fields of a critical-reflexive social research on the social conflicts centering around sustainability.

Abstract

Das neuartige Arbeitsmarktinstrument "Soziale Aktivierung" versammelt Maßnahmen, deren Wirkungen über die dominierenden Ziele der direkten und zeitnahen Integration in den Arbeitsmarkt hinausgehen sollen. Anhand von Fallbeispielen wie Kung-Fu-Kursen oder Theatergruppen rekonstruiert Carolin Freier, wie Langzeitarbeitslose und andere arbeitsmarktferne Personen hierdurch "sozial aktiviert" und zur sozialen Teilhabe befähigt werden sollen, u.a. durch das (Wieder-)Erlernen von Alltagskompetenzen. Die Studie zeichnet nach, wie diese Maßnahmen in der täglichen Praxis der Arbeitsvermittlung entstanden, auf welche Strategien sie sich zurückführen lassen und welche Folgen sich für die Arbeitslosen ergeben.
