Social Stratification of Child Development

Monday, 16 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
RC28 Social Stratification (host committee)

Language: English

The session aims to integrate social stratification research with current theoretical models and concepts of human development. We invite contributions that analyze children’s cognitive, socio-emotional, or physiological development from the perspective of social stratification. Studies of early childhood using an innovative theoretical or methodological approach and large-scale longitudinal data are particularly welcome.
