NEW POSITION from February 2014

From February 2014 I will be a post-doctorial researcher at the Friedrich-Schiller-University of Jena’s Institute of Sociology. I will work with Prof. Hartmut Rosa (co-editor of Time&Society and known amongst others for his enagagement with Charles Taylor and his profound theory of social acceleration). Rosa is a a current and leading proponent of critical social theory informed by the Frankfurt School theory tradition, the institute in Jena is a new gathering point for critical theory in the German-speaking countries, so I am very happy and proud to work in Jena.

A very interesting volume that presents Jena’s critical sociology is the book “Soziologie – Kapitalismus – Kritik: Eine Debatte” (Sociology – Capitalism – Critique: A debate) published in German with Suhrkamp (
