RF 3: Applied Sociology

Members: (Gerhard Grossmann, pens.),  (Johanna Muckenhuber), (Anja Eder)(Manfred Prisching, pens.), (Katharina Scherke), (Hannah Volk), (Peter Gasser-Steiner, pens.)


Brief description:The research focus “Applied Sociology” bridges the gap between theory and social practice by looking at various social problem areas. Specific studies in various fields of sociology, such as economic, political, urban and regional; health and medical, migration, as well as risk and disaster research, applied labour research and sociological evaluation research are conducted. (Unlike research focus 1, which mainly focuses on theoretical issues of cultural sociology, “Applied Sociology” deals with specific, and to some extent empirical topics.) Furthermore, particular attention is given to Public Science, interactions with societal practice and different fields of sociological policy consultation. Johanna Muckenhuber is the spokesperson of this research focus.
