Multigenerational Perspectives on Stratification

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
RC28 Social Stratification (host committee)

Language: English

Emerging literature has expanded the scope of on stratification and mobility research that has traditionally focused on parent-child relationships by assessing the extent to which grandparents (and ancestors) directly influence grandchildren’s socioeconomic outcomes, net of parental influence. However, results of multigenerational effects are mixed across contexts. The proposed session calls for papers that apply multigenerational perspectives on stratification and mobility across diverse social contexts. Particularly welcome are studies that address mechanisms through which mutigenerational effects are generated. Both contemporary and historical studies of stratification and mobility beyond two generations will provide new insights into processes through which social inequality persists or changes across multiple generations.
