The concept of dimensions appearing in the title of the paper also covers delimitation, formatting, matrix etc. This approach is suitable for historical sociology, which focuses on long-term social processes as well as differences and similarities in different periods of history. Any research interest in this field is represented by a specific social theory with an emphasis on comparative civilization analysis. Historical sociology of knowledge, culture and emotions also has its place here.

The aim of this theoretical consultation is to set the beginning of colonial development using two seemingly contradictory concepts that often appear next to each other in history – the authoritarian and the liberal governmentality. Within this framework, the paper follows the transformation from immanent to intentional development, which is the basis of authoritarianism and the shift of the term development to its social content, which is the basis of the liberal governmentality. The paper also analyzes the reasons for the origin of development during colonialism and asks the question of the continuities and discontinuities between the colonial and postcolonial era to show elements of authoritarianism and liberalism that coexist until today.

The aim of this article is to describe the social aspects that affect performing the role of grandmother. The historical-sociological approach was chosen to research this topic. It uses knowledge of previous situations and processes to an in-depth understanding of the contemporary situation. Interviews realized with eight grandmothers of children aged 6–8 were analyzed. The article presents the grandmothers’ reflection of the social framework for performing the grandmother’s role. In grandmothers’ opinions, this framework has a significant impact on the possibilities of performing a grandmother’s role. Using the historical-sociological approach also allowed us to identify changes in the framework during the last decades. These changes are explained on examples of the last three generations of grandmothers in the text.

Class based electoral behaviour belongs to topics that have been subject of research for many decades; especially in developed Western countries. The class structure is a basis for class voting research. The EGP scheme is a most widespread model of social structure. This scheme is based on the employment structure; some authors prefer other models based for example. On the number of assets of each household or on the household income. This paper attempts to test different stratification models using the Colombia example to see whether class voting results will differ significantly or whether certain matches will be found.

The events of the mid-19th century marked a fundamental change for Central Europe, and the Austrian monarchy was no exception. Although the revolution of 1848 did not mean the permanent entrenchment of liberal changes (which did not occur until the adoption of the February Constitution in 1861), the changes associated with these events fundamentally changed the society of the empire. The end of the division of society and the introduction of equality before the law also significantly affected the social position of businessmen. Before 1848, their legal status was not defined and prestige depended primarily on the place on the traditional ranking of the social hierarchy, which was linked to the holding of a noble title or burgher rights. However, the year 1848 changed this situation and their prestige began to grow thanks to ever closer cooperation with the state and growing political influence. Since the change of the electoral rules to the Chamber of Deputies of the Austrian Imperial Council in 1873, businessmen have even had their own curia (chambers of commerce and trade). At this time, the aristocratic title was no longer a prerequisite for belonging to the elite, but it remained an external symbol of prestige and many businessmen sought it. They saw in it a depiction of their achievements and a fulcrum for the historical memory of their entire family. However, the path to it was not easy and in the case of businessmen it also differed significantly from other social groups of the monarchy.
