2440 - Reproduction of Families and Inequality

Sun, August 11, 2:30 to 4:10pm, Sheraton New York, Floor: Lower Level, Union Square

Session Submission Type: Paper Session 100min


Reproduction and family life are intimately intertwined in contexts across the globe and often work together in ways that perpetuate existing inequality. This session will explore the relationship between inequality and issues surrounding the reproduction of families, including: decision-making, fertility preferences and intentions, ambivalence, the timing of childbearing, and interactions between partners. The session also invites papers that examine inequality and contextual variation in reproductive processes, such as by relationship or marital status, at the country level, or across the life course. We welcome papers that employ a variety of methods and theoretical perspectives.
