SUMMER SCHOOL ON LONGITUDINAL AND LIFE COURSE RESEARCH
For PhD students, (research) master students and post-doctoral fellows.
3rd - 7th September 2012 Antwerp, Belgium.
The Summer School on longitudinal and life course research is a new initiative supported by relevant learned societies and research units. It aims to bring closer the social and biological sides of this research area and to build the early career capacity of a European research network.
The Summer School is intended for PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and (research) master students who are interested in exploring the potential of longitudinal and life course research or who want to develop further their existing skills.
The course includes lectures and discussions led by experienced 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 skills, with final day presentations and roundtable discussion giving constructive feedback.
Invited scholars for Summer School 2012 include: Francesco Billari; Arnstein Aassve; Cees Elzinga; Aat Liefbroer; Harvey Goldstein; Karel Neels; Dimitri Mortelmans; Mel Bartley; Glen Elder; Hill Kulu; Matthias Richter; David Blane.
