Dr. Tina Goldschmidt
Tina Goldschmidt has concluded her doctorate at the Department of Sociology at Stockholm University in June, 2017. Her research interests lie in the field of political sociology, especially in questions of redistribution and social solidarity. Focusing on Sweden and Germany, Tina's dissertation investigates majority responses to international migration and the diversification of formerly homogeneous societies. More specifically, the dissertation seeks to contribute to the academic debate on how ethnic diversity relates to majority attitudes toward the welfare state, also addressing how these attitudinal patterns are embedded in wider societal contexts and processes. Tina’s analyses are mainly quantitative in character, using a range of data sources, such as traditional and register-linked surveys as well as large corpora (digitalized news media contents).
Tina received an MSc in Sociology from the University of Oxford (2012) and a BA in Integrated Social Sciences from Jacobs University Bremen (2011).
