TBD with Marcy Carlson

A PSC Brown Bag Seminar

Marcia J. Carlson (University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of Sociology)

Monday, 11/18/2019, 12:00 pm

Location: ISR-Thompson 1430

Professor Carlson will discuss her recent research.


Dr. Carlson's primary research interests center on the associations between family contexts and the wellbeing of parents and children. She has explored the changing composition of families and aspects of their functioning. Her early work explored how family structure was associated with child and adolescent being, identifying fathers' involvement with children as a key mechanism by which family structure affects offspring. Much of her recent work is focused on growing family diversity and complexity, particularly with respect to fertility patterns and fatherhood, as well as how family change is linked with inequality in both the U.S. and cross-national contexts.

PSC Brown Bag seminars highlight recent research in population studies and serve as a focal point for building our research community.
