2340 - Social Inequality in Family Formation (Co-sponsored with the Section on Sociology of Population)

Sun, August 11, 12:30 to 2:10pm, Sheraton New York, Floor: Lower Level, Union Square

Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min


Just as there is no single understanding of what constitutes a family, there is increasing heterogeneity in how families are formed in contemporary society. Much recent research draws on the diverging destinies perspective to examine variation in family processes. This panel welcomes papers that consider the consequences of social inequality – whether by race/ethnicity, social class, nativity, sexual orientation, or other dimensions – for family formation.
