Gesellschaftlicher Zusammenhalt: Quellen, Gefährdungen und Ambivalenzen

The annual conference of the Research Institute Social Cohesion (RISC) is the first meeting of the entire RISC in presence since its foundation. Its goal is to use the conference for intensive exchange and discussions in order to compile the results of previous research, to continue debates and to develop perspectives for joint research.
On Friday, 15 July, we will present results from the projects of the Hamburg section at the HBI in the following panel sessions:

10:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
Panelsession B2: Soziale Medien und Gesellschaftlicher Zusammenhalt, Raum Weser 3+4 [Panel Session B2: Social Media and Social Cohesion, Room Weser 3+4]

Werkstattbericht des Social Media Observatory [Workshop Report of the Social Media Observatory]
Dr. Felix Münch, Jan Rau & Dr. Gregor Wiedemann

Erreichen Influencer nachrichtenarme Social-Media Nutzer*innen mit politischen Inhalten? [Do Influencers Reach Low-Message Social Media Users with Political Content?]
Hannah Immler & Dr. Lisa Merten 

4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Panelsessions D3: Schlaglichter auf den gesellschaftlichen Zusammenhalt [Panel Sessions D3: Spotlights on Social Cohesion]

Wie denken Menschen über zusammenhaltsrelevante Leistungen von Medienangeboten und Journalist*innen? Ergebnisse einer Repräsentativbefragung [What Do People Think About the Cohesion-Related Services of Media Services and Journalists? Findings of a Representative Survey]
PD Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt, Verena Albert, Irene Broer, Dr. Sascha Hölig, Hannah Immler, Prof. Dr. Wiebke Loosen

The HBI is involved in five projects at the RISC Hamburg section. More information is available here.

At the annual conference, the eleven locations will present the spectrum of research perspectives and approaches to social cohesion available at the RISC. Its "sources, threats and ambivalences" are investigated in a multidisciplinary manner in the RISC's sub-projects, and much space is given to the presentation of the research approaches developed in the process in several panel sessions. In other formats, the different paradigmatic starting points for researching social cohesion will be discussed and framed by an introductory keynote on democratic cohesion. A panel on the topic of "Cohesion and War" will highlight (trans-)national aspects of cohesion in and through war in light of the war in the Ukraine.
Further information on the conference programme and registration can be found here.
