CRiSS – Contemporary Research in Social Sciences

Contemporary Research in Social Sciences (CRiSS) is a recurring lecture series organised by the Faculty 02: Social Sciences, Media and Sports of Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz. Members from all of the faculty's disciplines - Communication Studies, Educational Science, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Sports Science - present their current research projects and provide an insight into their research activities. The lectures are held in English to also enable an international exchange - with international students as well as visiting researchers.



The new CRiSS-programme of 2018 will be published soon.

This time, topics include conspiracy theories and terrorist attacks, communication technologies and procrastination, sensitive questions, youth and sport, left-authoritarians' voting behavior, public opinion on within-EU mobility and migration, abortion, homework, EU-Africa relations, Pokémon GO, and human performance in weightlessness and under water.
