Research in the field of the sociology of gender includes theoretical, empirical, and practical studies and draws on the entire range of sociological methods and theories. This chapter reconstructs the more recent developments in the German-language sociology of gender along the lines of key issues―decentering, inequality and difference, intersectionality, care and precarization, and the body―and situates them in theoretical genealogies. Finally, we highlight current debates to outline avenues for future research.
