What is special sociology


Special sociologies - informally also called "hyphenated sociologies" - deal with the structures and processes of social subsystems or institutional areas of society. The areas named below belong to the special sociologies (see also the sections of the DGS). Some of them stand for large work contexts, others for small specialist areas that are researched by a few sociologists. Due to the increasing differentiation of sociology itself, further special sociologies are constantly being formed.
