Event description: 

As part of the workshops for Fall 2017 held by The Center for Research on Inequalities and the Life Course (CIQLE), Brian Powell is a guest speaker from Indiana University who will be giving a talk called “Sponsoring the Next Generation: How Americans View College Access and the Role of the Government, Families, and Youths in the Funding of Higher Education.” 

The workshop focuses on theoretical and methodological issues in the areas of the life course (education, training, labor markets, aging as well as family demography), social inequality (class structures, stratification, and social mobility) and related topics. The core of the workshop is devoted to the discussion of ongoing research by faculty and graduate students. The workshop will also include lectures and hands-on practical training in select topics in quantitative research methodology.
