The Summer School of the Society for Longitudinal and Lifecourse Studies will take place between 26 - 30 August 2024 at the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories in Bamberg, Germany.

The program includes lectures and discussions led by expert researchers. Examples are drawn from a wide range of longitudinal data sets and illustrated with social and biological life course outcomes. Computer lab sessions develop practical and statistical skills for life course research.

Life course research is a burgeoning, interdisciplinary field of studies. It is characterized by theoretical approaches that reflect and inform diverse areas such as sociology, demography, epidemiology, economics, psychology, and social biology. It is also characterized by a set of commonly-used quantitative research methods, such as event-history analysis, multi-level modelling, structural equation modelling and sequence analysis that span disciplinary boundaries.

The Summer School on Longitudinal and Life Course Research brings together scholars from diverse backgrounds and introduces them to the main theories and methods in longitudinal and life course research. Previous schools have been held in Antwerp, Oxford, Bamberg, Zurich, Milan, Geneva and Fribourg.

The Summer School is intended for post-doctoral fellows and postgraduate research students who are interested in exploring the potential of longitudinal and life course research or who wish to further develop their existing skills.
