The first conference of the Academy for Sociology took place between April 4th and 6th, 2018 on the topic “Growing inequality – divided society? Current Contributions of Empirical-Analytical Sociology” in München-Nymphenburg. 120 participants discussed over 60 lectures and posters (conference language German). We thank the Carl Friedrich von Siemens Foundation for the generous support.
You can find the programme of the conference here (in German).
The conference is the Academy’s most important academic event. Conferences usually take place once every two years. The focus of the three-day events is a main social science topic that is supplemented by lectures on other topics (open sessions). The board decides on the main topic and location of the conference.
Our first conferences dealt with the question of increasing social inequality (Munich, 2018) and the digitalization of society (Konstanz, 2019).
