Teaching focuses on social studies of politics and governance as well as social studies of science and technology and social studies of the senses and aesthetics. Theoretically there is a focus on pragmatist, praxeological and sociology of knowledge approaches. Methodologically there is a focus on qualitative social research following a pragmatist orientation of grounded inquiry comprising participatory observation, analyses of texts and images, interviews and open experiments. Thematically there is a focus on politics and governance of sustainable development especially with respect to energy and food.

Teaching activities include taught courses and supervision of research work for doctoral dissertations and BA- and MA-theses. Every semester people working on different kinds of study and research projects meet for a two-day colloquium which is held as a peer-coaching workshop on conceptual and methdodological issues of studying “governance as practice and culture”. Guests are welcome, please write a message, if you wish to participate.
