Guidelines for the essay: You are free to choose your topic, approach and writing style. You may find a good starting point in something that you are already familiar with, such as your diploma thesis, or an article or author that you like. You can then search for novel articles on that topic, for example on Google Academic, and discuss the debates and questions that you find interesting.
Some examples, for illustration purposes, include: What are some useful concepts for a sociological study of online dating? How can Goffman’s “presentation of self” illuminate life on social media?

How do authors discuss the relevance (or irrelevance) of questionnaires in social research, or of experiments? What are the benefits and risks of classifications based on empirical evidence? How can we understand and observe the diversity of masculinities and femininities? What is the sociological relevance of the concept of “ethnicity” in current research on Roma / Gypsies or other ethnic categories?
