  Add to Calendar 2021-01-13 11:00 2021-03-10 17:00 Europe/Paris Advanced topics in life course research

The life course perspective has rapidly become a popular analytical framework in the social sciences as well as neighboring disciplines, such as criminology and epidemiology. The essence of the life course approach is a focus on temporal aspects of human life courses, on topics such as human development, relationship between life stages, transitions, long-term effects of early life adversity, and the cumulative effects of disadvantage on health and aging.

This seminar on life course research combines some core substantive topics in life course research with considerations of analytical approaches to studying them. The seminar takes place in five sessions of two classes each (one in the morning and one in the afternoon). The five sessions will be two weeks apart. After the introductory session, we focus more deeply on four specific topics of life course research. In the morning class of each session, we discuss the substantive literature on the topic. In the afternoon, we discuss analytical choices (data, research designs, model specification issues) for analyzing these questions.
