Global Sociology Professorship

The Global Sociology Professorship at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center and Freie Universität Berlin focuses on global structures, processes, and changes, their causes, and outcomes. The aim of the professorship is to transcend methodological nationalism in sociological studies, to better understand the viability of the liberal script. It does so by bringing in a world societal perspective and investigating the role of cultural frameworks and norms in world society. Central themes include transnational social processes, including migration in the global South, transnational processes of norm-creation and diffusion, and the interactions in transnational families in a broader perspective.
