Welcome to the chair of sociological theory
In the bachelor’s program, our teaching includes the introduction to sociology and we engage with a wide range of sociological theory traditions. In the master’s program, we offer courses on experimental sociology and computational social science.
Our group conducts cutting-edge research on important social, political, and cultural matters, with a focus on developing deeper, mechanism-based understandings of social phenomena.
As analytical sociologists, we employ a range of methods and techniques to study individual behavior, its interactions, and their societal consequences. We use a combination of experiments, agent-based simulations, machine learning, social network analysis, and statistical models applied to digital trace, text, survey, and population register data to explain these processes.
16th Annual Conference of the International Network of Analytical Sociology
We are happy to announce the call for abstracts for the 16th INAS conference, to be held on May 30–31, 2024 in Leipzig. May 29 will be reserved for a networking event of women in INAS.
