Society for Longitudinal and Lifecourse Studies (SLLS) 2023 Annual Conference

Life Courses in Times of Uncertainty

The Life Course Centre is proud to be a sponsor of this conference

The theme of the 12th conference of the Society for Longitudinal and Lifecourse Studies is Life Courses in Times of Uncertainty. This theme 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.

The conference will be an in-person event, hosted by Sabine Walper and her team at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany.
