The conference theme 'Identity and Transformation: Studying Lives in Times of Social Change' intends to capture the impact of past and current changes at the macro level, such as the Collapse of the Soviet Union, the Great Recession, social media revolution, globalisation, gender roles, climate change and increasing rates of migration on individual lives and the way identity is maintained and transformed. Recognizing the role of individuals as agents, we also aim to discuss how individuals and the microsystems in which they are embedded (families, schools, peers, communities, etc.) act as agents for social and developmental transformation.
We welcome conference submissions from all areas of longitudinal and life course studies: sociology, demography, psychology, epidemiology, quantitative and qualitative methodology with contributions regarding processes and functioning within and across life course stages from infancy to old age. We encourage a mixture of contributions from different countries and institutions.
