The COVID19 pandemic not only constituted a significant threat to contemporary societies’ health systems, but also had an impact on social inequalities. In this project seminar, we will review recent studies dealing with the consequences of COVID19 and the related political measures on different dimensions of social inequality. Each participant of the seminar will select a particular domain, such as inequalities in education, the labour market or well-being and review and present the current state of the art in empirical research. We will discuss the findings jointly in the seminar sessions.

The first regular on-site session will be on 28th October 2021.

Content

In the research seminar, students undergo the entire process of quantitative empirical social research from the identification of a research question over the formulation of theoretically deducted hypotheses to empirical analyses. Over a period of two consecutive semesters, students will conduct their own research projects in the field of sociological research on education and the labour market. The empirical analyses will be based on a selected starting cohort of the German National Educational Panel Study (NEPS). The first part of the seminar (Winter term 2021/22) will be devoted to identifying a relevant research question against the background of the current state of research, deriving theory-guided hypotheses and developing a suitable research design. The second part of the seminar (Summer term 2022) will be devoted to working with the data and transferring the findings of the projects into a scientific research article.
