Abstract

This volume is a clear introduction to methods of data collection and analysis in the social sciences, with a special focus on interpretive methods based on a logic of discovering hypotheses and grounded theories. The chief methods presented are participant observation, open interviews and biographical case reconstruction. The special advantages of interpretive methods, as against other qualitative methods, are revealed by comparing them to content analysis. Empirical examples show how the methods presented can be implemented in practice, and concrete problems connected with conducting empirical research are discussed. By presenting individual case studies, the author shows how to apply the principle of openness when collecting empirical data, whether through interviews or observations, and she offers rules for analysis based on the principles of reconstruction and sequentiality.

Abstract

The volume discusses the possibilities and limits of the documentary method in terms of basic theory, methodology and methodology. Triangulation is important in two ways: as a research practice in itself and as a way of identifying blind spots. The interest in the topic of triangulation - taking on different perspectives - relates above all to questions about the possibilities and limits offered by the documentary method for triangulation in terms of basic theory, methodology, and method. This goes beyond the common understanding of triangulation as mixed methods, which involves the combination of different methods and the validation of results. The second part of the book deals with "blind spots" of the documentary method, which become clear in comparison with other methodologies and procedures of empirical social and educational research, but which are also constituted and revealed in the actual research practice (in the field of research). Both dimensions are taken into account in the volume.; Der Band diskutiert in grundlagentheoretischer, methodologischer und methodischer Hinsicht Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Dokumentarischen Methode. Triangulation ist dabei in doppelter Weise von Bedeutung: einmal als Forschungspraxis an sich und einmal als Möglichkeit der Identifikation blinder Flecken. Das Interesse am Thema Triangulation – Einnahme unterschiedlicher Perspektiven – bezieht sich vor allem auf Fragen danach, welche Möglichkeiten und Grenzen die Dokumentarische Methode für Triangulationen in grundlagentheoretischer, methodologischer und methodischer Hinsicht bietet. Damit wird über das gängige Verständnis von Triangulation als Mixed Methods hinausgegangen, bei dem es um die Kombination verschiedener Methoden und die Validierung von Ergebnissen geht. Im zweiten Teil des Buches geht es um „Blinde Flecken“ der Dokumentarischen Methode, die im Vergleich mit anderen Methodologien und Verfahren der empirischen Sozial- und Bildungsforschung deutlich werden, sich aber auch in der eigentlichen Forschungspraxis (im Forschungsfeld) konstituieren und offenbaren. Im Band werden beide Dimensionen berücksichtigt.

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

In today’s society we increasingly create and consume written content and images. This includes a range of sources, from social media posts to records held within organisations, and everything in between, including news articles, blogs, shopping lists and official government documents. Critically reading these ‘documents’ can help us to understand a huge amount about society. Doing Excellent Social Research with Documents includes guidance on how to ‘read between the lines’, and provides an overview of six research projects which use documents as data.

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.
