Call for Paper (closed): 

We are delighted to invite paper submissions for a workshop on the intergenerational transmission of socio-economic status, to be held at the campus of Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in May 2016. We aim to cover and synthesize the most recent developments in the field, bringing together scholars who address these areas from distinctive perspectives. Key themes of the workshop will be exposure – the importance of environment and neighborhoods; heritability – the biological and genetic processes contributing to the transmission of economic advantages; and opportunity – the degree to which these advantages are shaped by choice or circumstance. We also welcome submissions from other important strands of the broader literature, including but not limited to: descriptive and comparative work on inter- and multigenerational mobility, the measurement of mobility, theories of intergenerational mobility, early childhood development, assortative mating, and the literature on equality of opportunity.

Venue and Dates:
The workshop will take place over three days on May 26 to 28, 2016, at the Getafe campus of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, including an excursion on Saturday, May 28. Details will follow with the acceptance letters.
