The University of Geneva, together with the University of Sassari, organises a workshop on Methodologies and techniques for the analysis of surveys and longitudinal registers, from 18 to 20 June at the School of Architecture, design and urban planning in Alghero (Italy), Bastioni Marco Polo 77, 07041.
Based on the research topics of many LONGPOP ESRs, this workshop’s topic is centered around social inequalities in health in old age and the life course construction of heterogeneity in health and living conditions of the elderly populations.
In terms of theoretical background, we will exchange with the ESRs regarding the theories they employ in their own research. Probably the most popular reference is the theory of cumulative (dis)advantages that can also be found the field of developmental psychology with the concept of cognitive reserve, completed with the (dis)use theory.
All along the workshop, the ESRs will have a chance to discuss their own results, and more specifically their interpretation thereof. Each will benefit from the collective discussion but also receive in-depth face-to-face feedbacks.
Each of the three days will be held by a different professor and will start with a plenary lecture given by the researcher Rainer Gabriel, focusing on data and analytical methods, theories, and results and interpretations. The rest of the workshop will be held by Philippe Wanner, Professor of demography at the University of Geneva, Michel Oris, full professor in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Geneva and Matthias Kliegel, Professor in Psychology at the University of Geneva.
