Séminaire organisé à Madrid (Espagne) par le Panel scientifique de l’IUESP sur la nuptialité et the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC).
Appel à communications jusqu’au 31 janvier
Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"Seminar organizers seek contributions on first union patterns around the world, their trends, their determinants and the associated emerging challenges for family demography. They are especially interested in research that is based on a comparative approach (across countries or within a country) or that addresses the issue of trends and differentials in first union formation. Papers exploring more than one dataset are encouraged. Submissions that offer deep insight on a particular problem are also welcome. The seminar is open to contributions on all regions of the world.
Issues of interest to the Panel include, but are not limited to the following :
Entering into first union : tempo and quantum. Spatial differentials, converging/diverging trends over time, gender patterns. Determinants and factors of change (micro/meso/macro level) ; including structural determinants (e.g., change in marriage markets or in educational structures).
Changes in conjugal union types : marital vs. informal unions, religious vs. non religious marriages, traditional vs. legal or other combinations. Are there general trends ? What is the meaning of coexisting forms of union ?
Who marries whom ? Assortative mating and matching of the characteristics of the spouses (ethnic endogamy, social homogamy, age and sex homogamy, educational homogamy, religious homogamy, etc.).
Early marriage (union) or lifetime singlehood ? Trends, determinants and meaning of the behaviors which are at the extremes of the typical union patterns."
