The theme of the 13th conference of the Society for Longitudinal and Lifecourse Studies is Life Courses in Times of Uncertainty. This theme intends to capture the impact of societal (countries, welfare regimes) and meso-level contexts (local territories, organisations, social networks) on the life trajectories of individuals, mixing comparative and longitudinal analyses and how contexts change when individuals’ life courses take different normative paths across periods of time.


The conference will be an in-person event, hosted by Meena Kumari and her team at the University of Essex, United Kingdom. Maximum number of participants: 300.


Venue Address:
