AGST Module 1 (Environmental Policy & Rural Development Studies) will hold an intensive lecture course by Prof. Claudia Neu (University of Göttingen) entitled “Rural sociology – transformation in postindustrial societies” (Special Lecture on Natural Resources Economics IVA) from 25th to 28th July, 2017.
One of the primary objectives of this course is to introduce students to the principles of sociology in general and key concepts of rural sociology in particular. In addition, we want to provide the analytical tools for understanding the processes inherent to these concepts. Beyond that, the course aims at enhancing students’ ability to identify different research perspectives and to critically discuss and analyse research strategies and methods.
