Tour to Marienthal

The highlight of our social program will be a trip to Marienthal, the birthplace of Mixed Methods research. Take the opportunity to visit the museum in the nearby village of Gramatneusiedl— site of path-breaking research “Die Arbeitslosen von Marienthal” or “Marienthal: the sociography of an unemployed community”, in which Marie Jahoda, Paul Lazarsfeld and Hans Zeisel showed how unemployment destroys individuals and social life. Their findings and their method-mix have inspired a great deal of research, and are still impressive today. The lovely atmosphere of a Heurigen (local winery/tavern) finally will round off the day.
