RC28 Conference is a well-known venue for scholars from various parts of the world to meet and discuss theoretical and policy issues related to social inequality which is of growing concern in many countries. Having sessions particularly related to aging and life course in RC28 conference, we hope to stimulate public conversations on socioeconomic disparities in aging, life course trajectories, and inter-generational wealth transfers and savings from comparative and international perspectives. The conference will provide an important opportunity for scholars and public policymakers to discuss various experiences and challenges each country faces in relation to aging population.
Hyunjoon Park and Emily Hannum in the Department of Sociology and Population Studies Center would like to request support for the 2015 Summer Conference of Research Committee 28 (RC28, Social Stratification and Mobility) of the International Sociological Association, to be held at the University of Pennsylvania, August 17-19. Specifically, we would like to ask for TRIO support to sponsor sessions related to aging, life course, and inter-generational wealth transfers and savings in the three-day conference.
