PS Market, State, Social Institutions 1
PS 2

Students acquire the ability to explain theories and analyses of development and transformation of social institutions – in particular, institutions in terms of politics, market and civil society. They know how to analyse the effects and interactions of these institutions in societies. Students know central social scientific discussions, terms and methods to analyse market, state and social institutions and organizations.

The subject of the seminar is the relationship between state and market, as well as social institutions that have emerged from it. In particular, two theoretical positions will be explored which connect the state and the market in different ways: on the one hand, central approaches to materialistic critique of the state up to theories of the welfare state; on the other hand, more recent approaches to governmentality in the era of neoliberal subjectivation

Evaluation based on regular oral and written contributions by participants, presence in all sessions required.
