Models of Social Change and Social Stability

This course provides a critical in-depth overview of how models in mathematics and models of simulation can be used to model and analyze social change and social stability

Social change and social stability has constituted an essential field of research within sociology ever since the discipline was established as academic. This course introduces important formalised models and methods used to describe and analyse social change and social stability. Its main focus is on demonstrating how simple formalised models can help explain significantly more complex social dynamics than what would have been possible to describe using traditional/conventional theories expressed in everyday language.
