History, Biography and Age: Levels of Inequality in Life Course

In many late modern societies, increasing attention is being paid to the realities of inequality. Although those who focus on inequality have paid little attention to its relation to age, the set of temporally grounded processes associated with individual aging comprise a robust and reliable generator of social inequality. In this talk, Dr. Dale Dannefer (Chair of CWRU Dept of Sociology) will review those processes and consider the reasons for their resilience and the possibilities of change.

This is the first of our monthly Research Lunch Series, where scholars present research followed by a question and answer period. Bring a lunch; drinks and dessert provided.

We will meet in Crawford Hall, Room A13. RSVP to socialjustice@case.edu.
