Welcome to the Chair of Sociology, especially Family and Work

Our research and teaching activities are in the fields of life course sociology and comparative welfare state research, each with a focus on the topics of family and work. 

From an analytical-empirical perspective, we deal with questions concerning the reconciliation of family and work, life course and age(ing), gender inequality in income and wealth, and political attitudes. We usually apply quantitative methods such as sequence analysis, panel or multilevelregression. In our international research project MIG-AGE we pursue a mixed methods approach toinvestigate healthy aging and well-being of older migrants in Europe. 


An overview of our current research projects can be found here.
