Obituary | PD Dr. Monika Friedrich

The Institute mourns the death of long-time colleague PD Dr. Monika Friedrich, who succumbed to a serious illness. Monika Friedrich (March 1, 1941 - March 25, 2022) was employed at the Institute from 1974 until her retirement in 2006 as a research associate, professor (ret.) and private lecturer. In her teaching and research, she was extremely committed to an "interpretative approach" as she had become acquainted with it during her sociological studies in the USA. According to this approach, social reality does not represent an objective, describable order, but rather an ongoing interpretative process, at the center of which are the interpretations of meaning by the actors themselves. Methodologically, this paradigm corresponds to a qualitative approach based on the interpretations of the actors, as Ms. Friedrich taught at the Institute over many years and also applied in her own research.

We mourn the loss of a dear, committed and always helpful colleague.
