Time in Context and Time as Context

1st SOCLIFE Workshop on the Analysis of


Time in Context and Time as Context


Research Training Group SOCLIFE

University of Cologne

September 12-14, 2011.


Two perspectives on time are widespread in social theory: (1) a procedural perspective which treats time as an individual process within contexts and tries to model the contextual influence on the course of events (e.g. the risk of becoming poor after becoming unemployed depends on characteristics of the welfare state). And (2) time as context of social action (e.g. social modernization increases human security and thus induces a change of values). Although both perspectives are common in social theorizing, time and context are rarely considered simultaneously in statistical analysis. The workshop aims to bring both approaches together.
