Sociological Tour: a Review of Sessions for Sociologists of Religion at International Conferences in 2015
Several international conferences in sociology took place this summer. The European Sociological Association conference took place in Prague, the British Sociological Association Sociology of Religion Study Group conference was held in Great Britain, a conference on sociology of monasticism took place in Austria, and Russia hosted a conference on ‘Sociology of Religion in Late Modernity’. Ksenia Medvedeva, an HSE doctoral student, told us about her participation in these events.
Students of the international Master’s programme in Comparative Social Research, which opened in 2014, spent their first semester studying at the Moscow campus of the Higher School of Economics; the second semester was spent in St. Petersburg. Another six months will be devoted to study abroad. Mobility in the educational process is an important principle of the programme that allows future sociologists to better understand social reality. The English-language programme turned out to of interest not only to Russian students, but also to graduates of prestigious foreign universities.
