I'm a (male) sociology teacher at a German university, where I mainly work on everyday life, symbolic interaction, television studies, social control, Goffman, Ethnography.

I'll occasionally post sociology, but I guess I post a lot more Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Community and whatever makes me laugh. And that's potentially anything and everything: If you take life too seriously, it stops being funny. Plus, funny is the only feel I have, so might as well ride it out!
I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.

I’ve already blogged this before but it basically sums up my entire philosophy much better than I ever could so here we are.
