Good looking interviewers have an easier time getting people to talk but their attractiveness also affects the answers of the persons being interviewed, concludes new research from the Department of Sociology at the University of Copenhagen
Knowledge production in academia today is burgeoning and increasingly interdisciplinary in nature. PhD Fellow Lasse Gøhler Johansson contributed to explore this transformative process. What are the implications, both for the modes of research and for the organisation of the humanities and higher education?
In cooperation with Kieran Keohane, Department of Sociology, University College Cork and Anders Petersen, Department of Sociology and Social Work, Aalborg University, Mikael Carleheden edited a special issue of Distinktion – Journal of Social Theory on Social Pathologies of Contemporary Modernity.
Social pathology was once a mainstream concern of the social sciences, but over the years it has become associated with conventional, ‘old fashioned’, or normatively conservative standpoints. For instance, the social science focus on social pathologies of the early and mid-twentieth century was on specific topics, such as alcoholism, crime and delinquency and (what was seen at that time as) sexual deviance.
The Department of Sociology welcomes about 80 international students from all over the world every term. As an international student at the University of Copenhagen there are several ways of getting guidance on your studies.
