Families, Inequalities and Well-Being

Saturday, 21 July 2018: 10:30-12:20
RC06 Family Research (host committee)

Language: English

Life course research and theory have come a long way in recent years, with an expanding focus from age-graded life periods to life-long approaches. The life course perspective, however, is not limited to cumulative life experiences whether advantages or disadvantages. Central to the perspective is linked lives, how individual life courses are joined with those of others. No links are more central to our lives that those in families, whether by birth, relationality, union formation or adoption. Papers are sought for this session that look specifically at how familial linked lives play a role in health inequalities in aging families.
