Veranstaltungen

Das SOCIUM veranstaltet in jedem Semester eine Jour Fixe Reihe, in der aktuelle Ergebnisse der Ungleichheits- und Sozialpolitikforschung zur Diskussion gestellt und aktuelle Entwicklungen erörtert werden.

Spezifisch auf gesundheitspolitische Themen ist das Gesundheitspolitische Kolloquium ausgerichtet, das ebenfalls regelmäßig in jedem Semester veranstaltet wird.

Um die Methodenkompetenzen zu stärken und den interdisziplinären Dialog anzuregen, bietet die Brückenprofessur des Wissenschaftsschwerpunkts Sozialwissenschaften Lectures, Methodenworkshops und -schulungen, durchgeführt von international führenden Expertinnen und Experten an.

Mit Tagungen, Vorträgen, Workshops sowie weiteren Veranstaltungen bietet das SOCIUM Foren zur Diskussion und Entwicklung ungleichheitsbezogener und sozialpolitischer Forschung.

"Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for Its Rulers"

Prof. Jennifer Pan (Stanford University)

Uhrzeit:
17:30-19:00
Semester:
WiSe 2021/22

Jennifer Pan is an Assistant Professor of Communication at Stanford University. Her research focuses on political communication and authoritarian politics. Pan uses experimental and computational methods with large-scale datasets on political activity in China and other authoritarian regimes to answer questions about how autocrats perpetuate their rule. How political censorship, propaganda, and information manipulation work in the digital age. How preferences and behaviors are shaped as a result.

Her book, Welfare for Autocrats: How Social Assistance in China Cares for its Rulers (Oxford, 2020) shows how China's pursuit of political order transformed the country’s main social assistance program, Dibao, for repressive purposes. Her work has appeared in peer reviewed publications such as the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of Politics, and Science.

Gender, Right-Wing Populism and Family Policy Discourses in Hungary and in Poland

''The main topic of this presentation is to analyse the recent reforms and discourses about gender roles as produced and activated by the right-wing populist governments in Hungary (post 2010)  and Poland (post 2015). In the context of a rapid demographic decline that took place in almost all East European Countries, women started to be predominantly perceived through their reproductive functions. In Hungary, pro-natalist policies favouring cash transfers were intensified under the slogans of ‘demographic revolution of the middle class’, with blaming women for falling fertility rates. In Poland, aligned with the Catholic Church, the new government has openly attacked the notion of gender, while limiting access to emergency contraception, IVF treatment, and allowing the repeated attempts to introduce a complete abortion ban, while at the same time investing heavily in child-related policies. Overall, such approach would place more emphasis on supply side of politics. For characterising the recent reforms in Hungary and Poland I am using the notions of maternalism and familialism (and their varieties) and then to analyse the main discourses around maternity in relation to gender roles and other accompanying discourses employed by the right-wing populist governments in the new political contexts. My argument is that the recent developments in these policies and discourses can be interpreted as re-building and strengthening national identities. Specifically, I am using Nira Yuval-Davis’s framework of gendered nationalism. As previous studies often focused on Hungarian-Polish comparison due to differences in their policy mixes, with Hungary being labelled ‘public maternalism’ or ‘comprehensive support’ and Poland – ‘private maternalism’ or ‘implicit familialism’, this paper demonstrates how the recent reforms contribute to transformation of Polish version of maternalism from ‘private’ to ‘public’.

Thematic Conference

Technological Change, Digitalization and Life Course Inequalities

Technological change has major implications for social inequality. Most of the research focuses on changes in skill requirements and labor market transformations. Yet, digitalization, more than ever before, has the potential to impact inequalities across a wide range of life domains and for different groups in society. This workshop aims to connect researchers to discuss the most important developments and challenges that digitalization has for inequality. The aim is to stimulate and cross-fertilize research on digitalization and inequality regarding various dimensions of the life course and life periods/stages, across various institutional settings. Example questions are: Are gender inequalities intensified or alleviated by technological changes? Do digital technologies foster family relations across generations? What are the implications of changes in skill requirements at work for the reproduction of social inequality? Can elderly benefit from technological advancements or are they left behind? How doesdigitalization impact ethnic inequalities and segregation (e.g., language barriers, labor market integration)?

This workshop encourages contributions on the following topics (but not limited to)

  • Labor market inequality;
  • Family relations;
  • Gender inequality;
  • Cognitive and noncognitive skills;
  • Educational inequality;
  • Work-life interferences;
  • Well-being;
  • Civic and democratic participation
