The Center for Life Course and Longitudinal Studies (C2LS) is initiating a series of “Life Course Workshops” to encourage active discussion of the life course perspective and its potential to illuminate the nature of human lives and processes of individual and social change. Both faculty and students are encouraged to participate. Everyone is welcome!

We hope the “Life Course Workshops” will develop a format that encourages active discussion, in order to talk about things we have read (recent and not so recent), and ways to think about how our research is connected and could be framed/conceptualized and addressed within a life course framework. Initially, we will experiment with a format that fosters these goals, with a structure that will allow Center members to bring their problems and issues to the table for joint consideration.

In order to find the suggested readings for each week for downloading, go to the “Life Course Workshop” tab at the following website:
