The Department for the Theory of Society and Social Analyses of the Institute of Sociology at the Johannes Kepler University Linz addresses questions on social inequality and power relations from a socio-theoretical and critical perspective on a global, national and local level. The department focuses on labor, care, science, and the welfare state as well as historical and current theories of society and capitalism. With these issues, the working focus of the department connects research and teaching in political sociology as well as Migration and Gender Studies. Empirically we are currently working on 24-hours care, politics of childcare and apprenticeship in a social investment sate, the integration of unaccompanied refugee minors and the economization of universities. In the tradition of a public sociology, we strive to strengthen the dialogue between science and society.
