SLLS 2022: Growing Up and Growing Older Across Societies – Harnessing the Power of Comparative Research

CLOSER is pleased to be a sponsor at this year's Society for Longitudinal and Lifecourse Studies (SLLS) conference. The hybrid event will take place in-person in Cleveland, Ohio (USA) from 23-25 October 2022.

About the conference

Conference Dates: 23 – 25 October 2022 (workshops on 22nd October)

The conference theme Growing Up and Growing Older Across Societies: Harnessing the Power of Comparative Research, intends to capture the impact of societal (countries, welfare regimes) and meso-level contexts (local territories, organisations, social networks) on the life trajectories of individuals, mixing comparative and longitudinal analyses and how contexts change when individuals’ life courses take different normative paths across periods of time.

This year’s conference submissions come from all areas of longitudinal and life course studies: sociology, demography, psychology, epidemiology, quantitative and qualitative methodology with contributions regarding processes and functioning within and across life course stages from infancy to old age.

The conference will host a great range of presentations, from keynotes to symposia, panel discussions, individual paper and poster sessions – and with the majority of presenters attending in-person in Cleveland, there will also be an opportunity to participate remotely in many sessions for those who cannot travel.

On the 22nd October, two pre-conference workshops will also take place.

We thank our conference sponsors, Gateway to Global Aging DataPanel Study of Income DynamicsCLOSER UKIPUMS, and Life Course Center, University of Minnesota.
