Foredrag med Niels Ploug: ”Økonomisk Ulighed i Danmark”

Da Thomas Pikettys bog, Kapitalen i det 21. århundrede, udkom, fik emnet ulighed igen internationalt fokus. I de sidste par år er uligheden også steget i Danmark, men er det et problem, når velstanden samtidig øges? Dansk Sociologforening indbyder til foredrag med økonom Niels Ploug, som udover at være afdelingsdirektør for personstatistik i Danmarks Statistik også er redaktør på den nye bog “Økonomisk ulighed i Danmark”, udgivet på Saxo. I denne bog samles en række perspektiver på økonomisk ulighed i en dansk kontekst, og fokus er blandt andet på emner som arv, velfærdsstaten, skat og historiske udviklinger. Foredraget vil give et overblik over de synspunkter og indsigter, som bogens bidragsydere præsenterer og der er mulighed for efterfølgende at stille spørgsmål til Niels Ploug.

Arrangementet finder sted mandag d. 19. februar kl. 17.00-19.00 i lokale 2.0.63 på Center for Sundhed og Samfund, Øster Farimagsgade 5A, 1353 København K.

CALL FOR SESSIONS – Nordic Sociological Conference

Dear colleagues and fellow scholars,

From the 8th to the 10th of August 2018 the 29th Nordic Sociological Association Conference will be hosted by the Department of Sociology and Social Work, Aalborg University, Denmark. This summer conference will take place in the city of Aalborg. We hereby invite calls for sessions.

For more information see: http://www.nsa2018.aau.dk/call-for-sessions/

The title and overall theme is:

The Global North – Welfare policies, mobilities, inequalities, and social movements

The conference focuses on the relation between Nordic countries and global processes. How do the Nordic countries influence global processes and how do global processes such as migration, division of labour, environmental problems, commodity production and discourses for modern governance influence the Nordic countries. The conference will address challenges to the Nordic countries and responses to such challenges. Hence, the conference addresses questions of migration, poverty, inequality, recent labour market and welfare state developments. The conference also focuses on responses from civil society, institutional developments, changes in organizations, management, governance and the frontline of the welfare state.

You will find this information and more on the homepage of the conference: http://www.nsa2018.aau.dk/

Professor Mike Savage (London School of Economics and Social Science) has confirmed that he will give a keynote lecture.

We welcome proposals for thematic sessions for the conference as well as proposal outside the overall theme. In selecting sessions, we will emphasise a broad approach to discussing the development in the Nordic Countries in relation the global processes mentioned in the theme description. Please refer to the website for detailed information on what the proposal should include.

Digitalisering af Arbejdsmarkedet

Onsdag den 8. november afholdtes arrangement om digitalisering af arbejdsmarkedet.

Arbejdsmarkedet er under forandring. Mange danskere oplever store ændringer i deres arbejde i takt med indførslen af ny teknologi. Samtidig giver opblomstringen af forskellige digitale platforme mulighed for, at danskere kan supplere deres indtægter ved at udføre opgaver eller udleje deres ejendom. Digitaliseringen skaber nye muligheder, men medfører også nye udfordringer og problemstillinger.

Hvor udbredt er digitalisering i Danmark? I hvilke brancher resulterer digital automatisering i et øget behov for uddannelse, efteruddannelse og mobilitet? Er digitale platformsarbejdere sikret sociale ydelser?

Det er nogle af de spørgsmål, du kan få svar på ved et arrangement på Københavns Universitet den 8. november kl. 15. Her kan du høre oplæg fra lektor Anna Ilsøe og videnskabelig assistent Louise Weber Madsen, der netop har udgivet den hidtil største undersøgelse af digitalisering af arbejdsmarkedet i Danmark.

Til arrangementet vil de to forskere præsentere deres undersøgelse, og efterfølgende vil der være en paneldebat med Simon Tøgern, Formand for HK/Privat og Morten Schønning Madsen, Underdirektør i Dansk Erhverv.

Call for papers: ESA RN34 bi-annual conference

Call for papers for the ESA RN34 bi-annual conference:

Religions and Identities in the European Migration Crisis

30 August -1 September 2018

TURIN (IT), University of Turin, Campus Luigi Einaudi

The relation between immigration, citizenship, integration/participation in host societies, and religion has been for quite some time central to the interest of scholars. Over time, the increase of migrations from non-European countries has further enriched the debate, drawing attention to various religious traditions. The growth in the number of Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists (as well as other religious affiliations) has re-directed scholars to the question of whether religious belonging (leading to convinced behavior) improves or hinders the process of integration of immigrants and, above all, of their children in the host society. At the same time, migration patterns have become quite complex. Migration from Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe has intensified and traditionally emigrant countries, particularly in Southern Europe, have also become destination countries. In addition, refugees and asylum seekers, associated with what has been usually termed as the “Mediterranean Crisis”, have prompted a profound social and political crisis across different European countries, contributing to anti-immigrant feelings. The issue of religious pluralism has thus become linked to wider interrelated issues such as citizenship rights; “deserving” and “non-deserving” migrants; how states and other institutions, including old and new religions, and in particular educational institutions, are managing the rising number of migrants; relations between different types of secularities and religious identities; understandings of cultural identities and so on.

The aim of the ESA RN34 mid-term conference is to respond to such challenges by welcoming papers that may contribute to:

– clarifying the relations between migrants and faiths in host societies;

– understanding the role played by ethnic churches/mosques/worship associations in the broader integration process;

– investigating about how native Europeans develop their identity in response/ relationship to the religious identities of the newcomers;

– addressing the relations between the European Convention on Human Rights and the role of regional and local authorities in managing religious pluralism;

– scrutinizing the issues of anti-religious racism, right-wing extremism, radicalization and fundamentalism;

– interrogating the treatment of various religious identities and different secular identities in host societies;

– exploring the relations between religions and gender in the context of migration;

– examining the implications for how immigrants, belonging both to first- and second-generations, (re)configure religious arrangements in the context of anti-immigrant discourse;

– contributing to an innovative research agenda on to what extent religions matter in migrants’ daily life.

Other topics related to the theme of the conference are also welcomed.

Beside papers, session /panel proposals are welcomed too.

PhD students and post-doc fellows are particularly encouraged to submit a paper. There is a possibility to propose also a poster session, including work in progress. The best poster will get a small, but nice prize.

A specific workshop will be organized on “Mixed-methods in exploring religiousness within diaspora communities” for non-academic researchers.

We look forward to your proposals and to welcoming you in Turin!

Roberta Ricucci & Siniša Zrinščak

(ESA – RN34 Coordinator & Vice-Coordinator)

Abstract/panel session submission deadline: January 10th, 2018

Abstracts of papers should be of max 300 words;

Session/panel proposals (including: convener and at maximum 4 speakers) should be of max 700 words. Please send your abstracts to turin2018.rn34@gmail.com

Thomas Hylland Eriksen, Professor of Anthropology, University of Oslo.

Elena Zdravomyslova, Professor of Sociology, European University, St. Petersburg.

Cultural/religions diversity, inequality and social cohesion are currently very hot topics in political and other public debates. In part this is due to waves of migration within recent decades but also to an increased focus, in the media and political debates, on rural-urban problematics, including unequal regional development and depopulation on rural areas. In both public debates and in a good deal of sociological publications cultural and social diversity is often addressed as a question of dichotomies, for instance between cosmopolitan and more local perspectives. Besides, what researchers and others often refer to as a partial transition from the welfare state to the competition state has also resulted in renewed public and scholarly attention to relationships between states and citizens, between public and private sectors and to inequality, personal responsibility and incitement to work. sonligt ansvar og incitament,

The role of sociology is to bring a certain level of nuance into such debates but also to shed light on how globalization, migration, political restructuring and political discourses influence national and local communities, relations of trust, social identity processes and not least relations between citizens, states, markets and civil societies. We invite anyone who is interested to participate in the conference of the Danish Association of Sociology with papers and sessions that address such themes from different angles, including empirical studies and theoretical perspectives on the creation and maintenance of social communities. Session and papers on other sociological topics are also welcome.
