For this session, we welcome submissions from a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives that integrate intersectionality into studies of the life course.
Open Session: Aging and Structural Inequalities
Organizer: Patricia Homan (Florida State University)
For this session, we welcome submissions from a variety of methodological and theoretical perspectives that explore structural inequalities in the context of aging. A variety of types of structural inequalities are of potential interest in this session.
Organizers: Marc Anthony Garcia (Syracuse University) and Emma Zang (Yale University)
There will be two SALC roundtable options for ASA 2023.
First, SALC will offer standard roundtable sessions, as we have in previous years. Those interested in submitting a paper to a standard roundtable session are welcome to do so through the ASA portal.
Second, SALC will accept submissions for research working group roundtables, a return to the informal working groups of previous years. For example, scholars working on retirement would organize a roundtable to discuss their own work, new developments in the area, ongoing and planned research projects with colleagues, research design, methods or new data. Participants in these groups can be listed on the program, like any other roundtable participants, as long as we receive names by the February 2023 ASA submission deadline. Participation in these groups is open to anyone who is interested, whether listed on the program or not.
To apply for a research working group roundtable:
1. an organizer must submit via the ASA portal by the February 2023 deadline for submitting paper abstracts to ASA,
2. the organizer must include a brief description (one paragraph) of the topic,
3. the organizer may submit names of any participants who wish to be listed in the program, but this is both optional and need not be complete.
Direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Invited Panel Session
There will also be an invited panel session on the topic of how aging and life course research can become more inclusive. We hope this session can lead to interesting discussions and hope to see you there!
Organizers: Stefanie Mollborn (Stockholm University) and Sung Park (Princeton University)
