Zdeněk Konopásek, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Sociology

As academic sociologist, I am interested in ambiguous and complex relationships between science, technology and politics. I have also written about communist power and auto/biographies (both as sociological data and as subject of study). Years ago, I was involved in a study of social policy and of welfare state institutions. I do not work with questionnaires and statistical data; rather, I rely on so called qualitative data – documents, personal accounts, life narratives, observations, etc. Too “big” and abstract sociological questions seem suspicious to me. I prefer detailed investigations of particular cases, controversies or situations, approached from multiple participants’ perspectives (this is not subjectivism, but rather a kind of meticulous realism).

Besides sociology, I enjoy doing and listening music. And, occasionally, I mention some other activities on this web site. All this mixed together can be viewed in a synoptic view or separately in particular thematic sections. These can be accessed by the menu in the top or directly:
