Young Researchers Workshop: Flexibilization and Changing Life Course Patterns

TransEurope Young Researcher Workshop
Flexibilization and Changing Life Course Patterns in a Globalizing Europe
University of Turin, Italy, June 18-19, 2010

The ESF Social Science Networking Programme “TransEurope” will host a 2-day Young Researcher Workshop (June 18-19, 2010), to be held at the University of Turin, Italy.
The aim of this international workshop is to bring together young European researchers to share and discuss research results together with experienced researchers. Confirmed senior participants include: Prof. Melinda Mills (Groningen), Prof. Jan Van Bavel (Brussels), Prof. Adriana Luciano and Prof. Massimo Follis (both Turin).
The workshop welcomes all empirical contributions that deal with major trends in the development of life course patterns and pivotal life course transitions in a globalizing Europe. Contributions to the workshop may be either country-specific or comparative in focus. Papers should primarily be based on quantitative data analyses of most recent available data sets, but qualitative studies of relevant target groups are also welcome.
Interested participants are asked to submit their applications, including (i) a short curriculum vitae as well as (ii) a general outline of their papers of up to 500 words, including information on the data sets used and methods applied until March 15th, 2010 at the following website: Further information is available on this web page as well as in the attached flyer.

For selected participants, there will be funding to cover travel cost and accommodation expenses.

Submission of Applications: March 15, 2010

TransEurope Research Network
The ESF TransEurope Research Network is an interdisciplinary research network comprising scientific experts from 7 European countries in Political Science, Demography, Economics, and Sociology. Its main scientific focus is to conceptualise, operationalise, test, and compare the impact of transnational shifts on life course inequality across Europe. At the same time, the Programme seeks to bring together national experts and junior researchers within Europe and create the opportunity for them to collaborate on innovative and path-breaking research.
