CfP "Intergenerational mobility, gender and family formation in the long run", Statistics Norway & Norwegian Research Council, Oslo, 20-21.6.201908-11-2018 12:56
Deadline for submissions: 9.12.2019
We invite submissions for a workshop on intergenerational economic mobility over the long run. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers contributing to the growing literature on intergenerational mobility, in order to showcase new developments and provide a forum for discussion of future directions. We are especially interested in contributions that explore the role of gender and family formation in the process of intergenerational transmission of economic status. While the bulk of the literature has focused on transmission from fathers to sons, the overall degree of mobility in a society likely depends on marriage institutions and on the transmission of skills between mothers and children. As the nature of marriage and the way in which mothers transfer human capital to children may differ over time and across countries, this may be useful for explaining trends and cross-country differences in mobility. We also welcome submissions on any topic related to intergenerational mobility and inequality, in modern, historical, and/or cross-country perspective.
Limited partial support for travel and accommodation for graduate students and junior faculty will be available.
