Die Frage nach dem sozialen Zusammenhalt unter Bedingungen der Vielfalt ist in der Soziologie seit Bestehen des Faches zentral. In einer urbanisierten, modernen Gesellschaft erfordert sie immer neue Antworten. Der 36. Kongress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Soziologie (DGS) bot Raum für lebhafte Debatten über die wachsende Vielfalt von Orientierungsangeboten, Selbstund Fremdzuschreibungen, soziale Lagen, Arbeitsweisen und Lebensstilen sowie über Bedingungen und Formen des Zusammenhalts. Die Bände dokumentieren die Kongressbeiträge und bieten damit einen umfassenden Überblick über die Aspekte des Themas sowie den gegenwärtigen wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisstand.
The Cultural Construction of Human-Animal Relations in Childhood
Author: Matthew Cole
Category: Social Science
Focusing on the socialization of the human use of other animals as resources in contemporary Western society, this book explores the cultural reproduction of human-nonhuman animal relations in childhood. With close attention to the dominant practices through which children encounter animals and mainstream representations of animals in children's culture - whether in terms of the selective exposure of children to animals as pets or as food in the home or in school, or the representation of animals in mass media and social media - Our Children and Other Animals reveals the interconnectedness of studies of childhood, culture and human-animal relations. In doing so it establishes the importance of human-animal relations in sociology, by describing the sociological importance of animals in children's lives and children in animals’ lives. Presenting a new typology of the various kinds of human-animal relationship, this conceptually innovative book constitutes a clear demonstration of the relevance of sociology to the interdisciplinary field of human-animal relations and will appeal to readers across the social sciences with interests in sociology, childhood studies, cultural and media studies and human-animal interaction.
