VU 2

Curr. 2021 § 5 (1) 15: This module serves to deepen selected subject areas of sociology. The students specialize in one or more subject(s) and acquire in-depth knowledge in them.

Students have acquired knowledge of the main economic and sociological (micro- and macro-level) explanations of gender inequality in labor market outcomes and can apply their knowledge to a specific theme of gender inequality.

How do we define "work"? How does employment develop in modern societies and at the present time? To what extent do we experience a "subjectification" of work? And an increase in "precarious" work? How is work organized and regulated? What does work have to do with gender?

In this course you will learn about theoretical approaches and empirical developments of work and organization.
