Overview

Researchers in the Generations, Place and Temporality cluster investigate the temporal dimensions to explain how historical life events have varying impacts on individuals depending on which stage these individuals are located in their life trajectories. Our research is dynamic and processual as it examines the intersection of biography, structure and history over time. We use a wide range of methodological approaches that encompass both qualitative and quantitative techniques. Our research output informs policies to redress inequality over the life course. We cover a broad range of topics including:

  • Age and Social Inclusion
  • Family Life Course
  • Intergenerational Inequality
  • Labour Market Transitions and Trajectories
  • Risk, Marginalization and Inequality
  • Transition narratives and life course biographies
