Abstract

In order to re-consider the relationship between migration and society, Marc Hill and Erol Yildiz turn established certainties over and include the experience of migration. Their focus is on shared stories that show the versatility of urban community life. By doing so, they make migration the starting point of other analyses of society. Postmigrant visions serve as categories of the analysis of social situations of mobility and diversity, make ambiguities and marginalized memories that articulate social conditions visible. Contrasting ideas are put in the focus without overlooking conditions of dominance and structural barriers.&#xD;

Abstract

Mit dem Begriff der Nation entwirft Marcus Koch einen Entwicklungsschritt für die Europäische Integration, durch den diese in den Herzen und Köpfen der Menschen stabilisiert werden kann. Er zeigt den Nutzen und das Potenzial der Nation als modernes politisches Strukturmerkmal in einer Zeit auf, in der die Probleme einer stetig komplexer werdenden Umwelt die Gesellschaft in Europa immer stärker unter Druck setzen. In den Zeiten einer in der öffentlichen Diskussion beschädigt scheinenden Europäischen Einigung werden so Anregungen für ein Weiterdenken über den Stand der derzeitigen Europäischen Union hinaus geboten.

Abstract

Society appears to us today in the flickering light of instability. It has not just been since the financial crisis that matters related to working and living conditions have proved themselves to be precarious. The author introduces the most important economic and sociological theories of precarization, and demonstrates that precarity has seized society in its entirety. We live in the society of precarity. But what can be drawn from this? Marchart describes contemporary social protests and their demands. He investigates their democratic and political implications and works towards a social theory of the conflict and of its contingencies.

Abstract

Until now, the category of `culture' functioned as a central category of difference and explanation for reduced ability of the support system to reach families at the intersections of migration and disability. The barriers are alleged to be located above all within the family. Their culturally specific interpretation of disability, according to this assumption, does not correspond to the expectations of empowerment in disability services. To confront this one-dimensional perspective, Donja Amirpur illustrates the complex life situations of these families. Through interviews and with the help of an intersectional, multi-faceted analysis, she depicts the barriers in the support system, and promotes a critical confrontation with hegemonic practices on a structural level.

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

The various sociologies of life do not interpret life only as the object that is socially standardized, enhanced and recognized. They always see it as a subject of its norms, its knowledge and its changes as well. Life is not one-sided; instead its entanglements are analyzed: the immanence of nature and culture; the concurrence of being active and passive; the co-constitution of affect and cognition; the identity of normativity and standardization. Following authors such as Bataille, Bergson, Canguilhem, Deleuze, Driesch, Plessner, the pragmatists or Simmel, the contributions featured in this book unfold different perspectives on the sociology of life, re-vitalizing a discourse that is instructive for sociological theory in a variety of ways.&#xD;

Abstract

»Frieden schaffen« ist das gemeinsame große Ziel vieler internationaler Akteure in Kriegs- und Krisengebieten. In der Praxis sind sie jedoch mit unterschiedlichsten Aufgaben betraut. Basierend auf qualitativen Interviews mit zurückgekehrten Praktiker_innen entwickelt Julika Bake ein vielschichtiges, dichtes Bild des Interventionsalltags. Sie zeigt auf, wie sich Angehörige verschiedener Berufsfelder in ihren Erzählungen über die Arbeit vor Ort positionieren, und geht der Frage nach, inwieweit die Unterscheidung von Intervenierenden in die Kategorien »zivil« und »militärisch« zu einem besseren Verständnis von internationalen Interventionen beiträgt.

Abstract

Has the quality of life of indigenous peoples in Latin America improved after three decades in which legislation has been built that recognizes them? Statistical information and the increase in social conflict in indigenous territories leads to a negative answer to this question. This essay is a critical reflection on the exhaustion of the multicultural moment in Latin America from the dialogue with the critical thinking that has emerged from the movements themselves, especially from activists and intellectuals who denounce the relationship between recognition policies and extractivist capitalism, resisting the colonialist images that these policies reproduce because they deny the historicity and political potential of their peoples.&#xD;

Abstract

Global phenomenons like climate change, poverty, terrorism, or financial crises suggest thinking about changed forms of coexistence and perception. Many movements, initiatives, and groups are currently searching for alternative ways. They all share a yearning for a new art of living together (con-vivere). Convivialism means exploring possibilities for people to provide for each other and at the same time take care of nature, albeit without avoiding legitimate conflicts. The globally discussed manifesto by renowned authors clarifies: This can only succeed within a social order that invokes a joint humanity, principles of joint socialization, the principle of individuality, and acceptance of creative opposition.
