In June 2008, the second and revised edition of Harrison White's opus magnum Identity and Control was published (Princeton University Press). On this occasion, we are going to hold an international symposium for a discussion of the Relational Sociology around White in Berlin on the 25th and 26th of September 2008. Goals of the symposium are to promote Relational Sociology in Germany (where it is still widely unknown), and, furthermore, to discuss its theoretical arguments, also in comparison to other theories of social structures, shed light upon its methodological implications, and highlight empirical applications in various fields.
