Research group for the study of time, culture and society
The Research Group TOR (Tempus Omnia Revelat– Sociology Department, Vrije Universiteit Brussel) was founded in 1982 as a group devoted to the study of time use and the temporal structures of contemporary society.
Over time the group’s interest widened from the sociological study of time to culture studies in general.
TOR conducts fundamental and applied research concerning themes such as time use, cultural changes in Flanders, media, youth culture, education, life cycle and civil society.
The research group has great expertise and extensive experience in research and survey methodology and is involved in several large scale inter-university and governmental survey projects.
