Increasing critical thinking

Society is constantly changing – how can a subject like sociology cope with the multitude of voices? For three years now, Prof. Dr. Manuela Boatcă has taught at the Institute of Sociology at the University of Freiburg. For Boatcă, who took her degree in English studies and German studies in Bucharest, Romania, before studying sociology in Germany and gaining her PhD at the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, teaching means both being aware of one’s own power when conveying knowledge, and learning from the students. Annette Hoffmann spoke to her about an altered conception of sociology, knowledge production and political engagement.
