ATTENTION: Block seminar by guest Prof. Ildikó Barna (Budapest) is taking place only March 5-9, 2018!!!

The course aims at presenting and discussing significant issues of the societies of East-Central Europe. The topics are approached primary from the perspective of sociology, however, interdisciplinarity also plays an important role. The course places emphasis on methodological issues also, as it presents different methodological considerations and tools in the research of the discussed issues.
