CALL FOR PAPERS
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: MONDAY 28th FEBRUARY 2022 (17:00 GMT)

This year, the conference theme Growing Up and Growing Older Across Societies: Harnessing the Power of Comparative Research 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.

 

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.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The SLLS plan to hold this conference in-person in Cleveland with some sessions also live-streamed and some taking place solely online. However, we may have to adapt the format in the event of an increase in Covid-19 restrictions (e.g. lockdowns, limits on capacity for indoor events etc.).

PROPOSALS ARE SOUGHT FOR FIVE KINDS OF PRESENTATION:

1.  A POSTER presentation for which an abstract of no more than 300 words is required. 

 

2. An individual PAPER for oral presentation for which an abstract of no more than 300 words is required. (Please note: Papers which do not fit into regular sessions may be allocated as posters.)

 

3.  A SYMPOSIUM comprising 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 PANEL session. Accepted sessions will be allocated a time slot of between 1-1.5 hrs. For each panel session we require a summary abstract of no more than 300 words.
