SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - NOW CLOSED
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 on individual lives, such as the current Covid pandemic, the Great Recession, the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as the social media revolution, globalisation, gender roles, climate change and increasing rates of migration - and the way individual identity is maintained or 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.
Proposals are sought for four kinds of presentation:
1. A POSTER presentation for which an abstract of no more than 300 words is required.
2. An individual PAPER presentation for which an abstract of no more than 300 words is required.
3. A SYMPOSIUM comprising of 3 - 5 papers. Accepted symposia will be allocated a time slot of between 1 – 1.5 hrs. For each symposium we require a summary abstract of no more than 200 words, plus an abstract of no more than 300 words for each paper.
4. A WORKSHOP Duration: half or full day.
