Recently, an interesting report of the conference “Re-Thinking Social Inequality” (12-15 May 2014, Hannover, Germany) was published at H-Soz-u-Kult. In the report, Vera Szöllösi-Brenig reviews the controversial discussions of the conference that, among other things, revolved around the question of how the social sciences cannot only further our understanding of social inequality but also contribute to a more sustainable handling of its effects. The report can be found at here (only available in German).

Six members of the Steering Committee have faced the difficult task of selecting 20 participants out of almost 100 applications for the International Winter Academy “Inequality, Education and Social Power: Transregional Perspectives”.
The selection process is now completed and you will soon find a list of selected candidates on this blog. The participants come from Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and Latin America. They have a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds, coming from such different fields as educational studies, sociology, cultural studies, social sciences, economics, development studies, anthropology, history as well as different area studies. The Steering Committee is very much looking forward to meeting this interesting group in Berlin in November 2014!
