Social Inequality in East Germany 1980–2000
The Material Situations of Employee Households in Changing Times

Christopher Banditt

Asociated PhD project

Within this PhD project, the socio–economic situations of East German employee households from 1980 until 2000—thus embedding the epochal break of 1989/90—will be researched. By focusing on material resources (household income, housing situation, saturation with technical consumer goods), the key determining factor for social inequality will be examined.

Iran and the “West” – Ruptures and Continuities past 1979

Daniel Walter

Research project

The project seeks to investigate Iran’s changing relationship with the “West” between the late 1970s and late 1990s. Informed by constructivist theories, it will look at the processes of dissociation and renegotiation during the overlap of logics informed by the Cold War and the globalization.
