Journalistische Rollenvorstellungen und Ideale des gesellschaftlichen Zusammenlebens

Verena Albert and Hannah Immler present current research findings on the topic of "Journalistic Role Perceptions and Ideals of Social Coexistence." They draw on a representative survey of the German population and another survey of German journalists (based on the third wave of the Worlds of Journalism Study).
The two researchers will give the presentation as part of the joint conference of Cluster 2 "Structures, Spaces and Milieus of Cohesion" of the Research Institute Social Cohesion and the DGS Section Social Inequalities and Social Structure Analysis, which will take place from March 5th to 7th in Bremen. The conference is dedicated to the tense relationship between inequality and cohesion and aims to deepen the dialog between cohesion and inequality research.

About the Event
The term "social cohesion", which is particularly prominent in political discourse, responds on the one hand to diagnoses of increasing social conflict, division, and polarization, which are problematized as "threats" to social cohesion. On the other hand, the appeal to "cohesion" in the face of social crises and transformation tasks (such as the coronavirus pandemic or the energy price crisis) serves to mobilize loyalty or solidarity. This also adds to the relevance of fundamental social science questions about what holds societies together and what drives them apart.
Inequality and cohesion are in a state of tension. It is the tendencies of social groups to drift apart - in terms of resources and status as well as attitudes and values - that significantly shape the discourse on the threat to social cohesion in terms of intensified inequality conflicts or even polarization. Following the question "How much inequality can cohesion tolerate?", the focus lies on the cohesion-threatening effects of inequalities.
