Conference of the German Sociological Association "The return of class society? Revisiting the relationship between research on social inequality and social theory"
Debates about the end or the revitalization of class society respectively are relevant both for the analysis of social structure and for social theory. The conference will focus on a number of questions: - What is the social basis of social inequalities and in what way do they become relevant for theorizing about society? What is the impact of discourses about social inequality? - How can the relationship between social inequality and functional differentiation be understood? What forms do socio-structural and cultural differences take in particular social fields? Do forms of “cultural hegemony” transverse social fields? - Were “old” layers and milieus such as middle class, working class, upper class transformed? Can distinctly “new” classes and/or milieus be observed? - Is the “class question” global? Can new class constellations be identified in a transnational perspective? How can we develop a global scope in the analysis of social structure?
