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 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 want to further develop their existing skills.
Themes Being Covered Include:
Sociology and Demography of the Life Course
Life Course Epidemiology
Life Course and Genetics
Event History Techniques
Multilevel Models for Life Course Processes
Structural Equation Models (SEM) for longitudinal data
