Tuesday PhD seminars

Research workshop for PhD students

These PhD seminar meetings were informal workshops taking place each 2 weeks, according to an agreed schedule. They were intended for invited PhD students interested in STS or related approaches to social study (ANT). Meetings have the form of "collective consultations": we discuss projects, partial analyses, drafts of papers or chapters, and related scientific literature. (During Autumn 2014 the seminar was organized as joint meetings with PhD students of Tereza Stöckelová.)

Creative writing in sociology

PhD programme in sociology, Faculty of Social Studies at the Masaryk University in Brno - workshop; SOC922, 15 credits (Autumn semester).

Sociology is a rhetorical exercise (Paul Atkinson). This course is not aimed at theoretical elaboration of this observation, but will take the form of a writing workshop and practically oriented collective debates on the topic. The work on site will be copmplemented by several home assignements. The main goals of the course are: (1) to cultivate practical skills of sociological reporting and writing; (2) to discuss and master formatting and finalizing of scholarly paper before submitting it to publication; (3) to mediate a mutual critical feedback on actual finished or almost-finished scholarly texts authored by the participants.

Sociology of things

BA programme in sociology, Faculty of Social Studies at the Masaryk University in Brno; code SOC131, 6 credits (spring semesters)

Things, technological artifacts and material objects play increasingly important role in our lives. Understanding how such material entities engage in social ordering leads us to taking more seriously the autonomous "thingy" existence of such traditionally sociologically relevant entities such as texts, documents or persons. Using numerous examples we will debate this increasing sociological sensitivity toward the world of things, which will shed some new light on fundaments of selected sociological schools and the entire discipline in general.
