The Collaborative Research Centre 1483 “Studies in Human Categorisation” invites you to a summer school at the Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz from June 18-24, 2023. In five work-intensive days, we will examine a phenomenon that is as ubiquitous as it is fundamental: Human beings continuously differentiate and categorise each other in a variety of ways, for example by age, gender, nationality, religion, language, race, attractiveness, but also by dietary habits or music preferences. In an exchange with renowned experts from various disciplines, conceptual and methodological foundations for the study of human categorisation will be discussed in different formats.
On Friday, July 1, in the Senate Meeting room of the NatFak building, CRC 1482 will present its disciplinary perspectives and empirical approaches to the public in a first conference. The event will culminate in a guest lecture by Marion Müller (Professor for Sociology at Uni Tübingen).
The program is available here. The conference is open to the public, but due to limited seat capacity we would ask for prior registration at the following email address: rmitchel[at]uni-mainz.de
