Cultural resocialization of Russian-speaking women in Germany”

Irina Gewinner (002)Dr. Irina Gewinner’s current projects address the interface of cultural transformation/diversification and social inequalities. She studies a variety of behavioral patterns and integration policies that affect social change. Theoretically and empirically, Dr. Gewinner investigates both the pluralization of societies through migration and the persistence/modification of cultural values. In her recent works, Dr Gewinner analyzes the influence of cultural values on the work-life balance of highly skilled migrants in Germany. Currently, she addresses how cultural stereotypes and gender ideologies shape gendered career choices of young people.
