Studies of Everyday Life

Doctoral programme Studies of Everyday Life qualifies doctoral students for the analysis of epistemological questions relating to the setting, reviewing and changing of everyday life, the world and related phenomena. It is thematically oriented towards the contemporary constitution of privacy and intimacy, to relations between the private and the public, to processes of formulating everyday ideologies, subject structures, identity practices, life styles, corporal and nutritionist practice and so on, all of which is needed for the understanding and interpretation of one's own world and everyday life.
Another emphasis is the analysis of those social groups which, according to available research, have been ideintified as realistically or symbolically deprived in their everyday life and active citizenship. Factors and risk areas for social exclusion in everyday life will be identified and analysed, together with the possibilities for a better social and participative status of people who are most vulnerable to social inequality and risk.
The programme is designed in an interdisciplinary way: besides sociology as a fundamental discipline, it draws on knowledge from socially-psychological, historical, political and related disciplines that analyse the interdependence of the microsphere of life and the socio-economic and cultural habitus, providing their restrictive framework.
