    February 22, 2019 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
    University of California-Berkeley

    Co-sponsored by the UC-Berkeley Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging-CEDA and the USC/UCLA Center for Biodemography and Population Health, and following workshops held on this topic at USC and Berkeley in 2016, 2017, and 2018, this upcoming workshop is designed to share leading research methods and findings on comparative patterns of adult mortality, mortality determinants, and risk factors in low and middle-income countries (LMICs).
    The goal is to build a robust evidence base for understanding the drivers of cross-national mortality and health expectancy patterns, especially in populations with unusually high or low adult mortality.  The newly expanded availability of longitudinal HRS-type surveys in LMICs make this an opportune time to gather a network of researchers using such data to study mortality patterns and determinants, in order to share innovative methods, new results, and ideas for the most promising research agenda going forward.

  • Southern Sociological Society
    April 10, 2019 - April 13, 2019
    The Whitley, 3434 Peachtree Rd. NE, Atlanta, GA

    Our theme for the SSS 2019 meeting in Atlanta is “The challenge of intersectionality: Who and what are missing?” We will talk about what intersectionality means, which groups/systems of inequality our research includes and which it does not (and why), what approaches and methods best illuminate inequalities, and how we do intersectional analysis of our data. Such large questions pertain to what many of us do, but we welcome submissions that reflect all areas of sociological interest. SSS remains committed to including all types of sociology and sociologists, and we encourage all to be a part of this larger conversation.
