Sociology Workshop - Prof. Hans Bertram

Prof. Hans Bertram (Chair, MicroSociology, Humboldt University-Berlin, Germany) presents "No Time for love, No Time for Children," Tues. March 5, 4:00 pm, 1114 Soc Sci Bldg. Co-sponsored by the Life Course Center.
Abstract:
The years between 1970 and 2010 have led to profound changes in family forms in the U.S. and in Germany. Many demographers have interpreted this changes as a result of the "Silent Revolution". Thus, the "Second Demographic Transition" (Lesthaege) is viewed essentially as a result of changes in values and the individualization processes in modern societies. In a research project comparing the family development in the U.S. and in Germany, "The Changing American Family" (Bianchi) was largely replicated. Based on this empirical data, we can show that in Germany, however, structural changes in the economy, in the life course and in politics have influenced these changes fundamentally. Prof. Bertram will outline these interrelationships between life course, economics, and politics, and point out some consequences of these processes. A key consequence of this change is loss of time for stable relationships together with an increasing commercialization of social relationships. A further consequence is the overloading of the next generation, which must solve, in a "rush hour of life," a lot more problems of their own life course than all previous generations.
