Title & abstract October 13
Our first meeting titled "The Groningen Tradition" will feature our pensioned professors Siegwart Lindenberg, Frans Stokman and Tom Snijders, who will share some of their current perspectives on societal challenges and sociological research, drawing from their experience of spearheading Groningen sociology. The meeting will have the format of a trilateral conversation in front of an audience, in which the three professors have an exchange of thoughts on a selection of topics ranging from the history of their scientific ideas to today's standing of sociology in the Netherlands. To make this an interactive meeting, the audience is welcome to ask questions and engage in a discussion about how the Groningen tradition developed and what its distinctive features are, among other topics.
