Oregon State: Global Collaboration Addresses Life Course Research

Dr. Rick Settersten, professor at the Oregon State University College of Public Health and Human Sciences, co-edited a special issue of the journal Advances in Life Course Research with two colleagues, Dr. Laura Bernardi from Switzerland and Dr. Johannes Huinink of Germany. The issue, “Theoretical and Methodological Frontiers in Life Course Research,” is now online and in print.  It contains voices from sociology, psychology, demography, anthropology, economics, epidemiology and other fields. The project began with an international working conference at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Delmenhorst, Germany.

Drs. Settersten, Bernardi and Huinink also collaborated on the paper “The ‘life course cube’: a tool for studying lives.” Professionals around the world have reported that they’re using the paper to train their graduate students and to orient and organize their research agendas.
