Public Panel Discussion

Marie Jahoda's Legacy

=> The recording is available NOW

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Marie Jahoda School at the Department of Sociology of the University of Vienna, the panel discussion will explore the legacy of Marie Jahoda both in her capacity as a social scientist and a political activist. The contributions will cover her life and work in the context of the Austro-Marxist movement, the Austro-fascist dictatorship and the development of social sciences in the 1920s and 1930s in Vienna. A particular focus will be on Marie Jahoda's work on unemployment and its legacy in today's socio-psychological research in this area.
