The topic for the 2023 edition of the ECSR Spring School is “Changing families and social inequality over the life course”. The School is promoted by the European Consortium of Sociological Research (ECSR), Collegio Carlo Alberto and by the Universities of Milan and Turin in the frame of the NASP, Network for the Advancement in Social and Political Studies. It provides high-quality training on current research on family and social inequality, including family formation and fertility dynamics, the social consequences of family arrangements for children's life chances, and the effects of family events on occupational outcomes. A limited number of doctoral students and young researchers will participate in a four-day, full-immersion course, including lectures on the key topics in the field – both conceptual and methodological –, workshops and the opportunity to present their work and have it discussed by leading scholars in the field.
The School is organized by Nazareno Panichella (University of Milan, scientific coordinator), Filippo Barbera (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Camilla Borgna (University of Turin), Stefano Cantalini (Stockholm University), Emanuela Struffolino (University of Milan), Tiziana Nazio (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin) and Antonina Zhelenkova (University of Milan, practical organization).
Lectures will be given and presentations discussed by Kieron Barclay (Stockholm University), Laura Bernardi (University of Lausanne), Camilla Borgna (University of Turin), Stefano Cantalini (Stockholm University), Juho Härkönen (European University Institute), Anna Matysiak (University of Warsaw), Manuela Naldini (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Tiziana Nazio (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Nazareno Panichella (University of Milan), Brienna Perelli-Harris (University of
Southampton), Chiara Saraceno (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), Cristina Solera (Collegio Carlo Alberto and University of Turin), and Emanuela Struffolino (University of Milan).
