Life Course Research

Dates:
  • Mon 21 Jan 2019 11.00 - 13.00
  Add to Calendar 2019-01-21 11:00 2019-01-21 13:00 Europe/Paris Life Course Research

This course serves as an introduction to life course research. The life course approach has become increasingly popular in the social sciences, but also in neighboring fields such as psychology and epidemiology. It analyzes human lives and behaviours as longitudinal processes that unfold within social and institutional contexts and which are shaped by previous experiences—ranging all the way to the prenatal stage—and future plans and expectations. The life course approach has become the standard theoretical framework for analyzing longitudinal data and is used to answer questions relating, for example, to the development of socioeconomic status, health, psychological functioning, and political and social attitudes and behaviour; transitions to adulthood, old age, and other life stages; and the long-term effects of factors such as birth weight, childhood conditions, and (un)successful entry into the labour market.
