Analytical field research: Workshop on the political sociology of transnational fields

Participation in political processes and other social fields is changing through the involvement of interested actors within and beyond a nation state. This creates new cross-border orders and fields of governance. How can such transnational socialization processes and the associated new forms of governance be understood and explained from a political sociology perspective? The scientific network on the political sociology of transnational fields, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), held its third workshop at the MPIfG from June 20-22, 2018, focusing on the analysis of transnationalism from a field perspective. The network brings together 18 young sociologists from all over Germany. In addition to the network members, Didier Bigo from King's College London and Sciences Po Paris, Larissa Buchholz from Northwestern University, Karim Fertikh from SAGE Université de Strasbourg, Didier Georgakakis from Université Paris I - Panthéon-Sorbonne and Richard Münch from Bamberg University presented their research on transnationalization processes.
