CSDE Seminar Series

Point of Reference: A Multidimensional Understanding of Migration, Fertility, and Reproductive Health

     When:  Friday, Nov 15, 2019 (12:30 - 1:30 PM)
     Where:  121 Raitt Hall

This Friday, Julia Behrman, Assistant Professor of Sociology at Northwestern University will present on her analyses of how estimated associations between migration and fertility and reproductive health outcomes differ when comparing migrant women to non-migrant women in receiving versus sending countries. This method of comparison provides a fuller understanding of processes surrounding migration and assimilation to fertility and family norms in destination-contexts. Behrman will also discuss the role of selection into migration and provide insight into the mechanisms underlying fertility change among migrant populations.

Please visit the seminar page to reserve time to meet with Julia Behrman.

Dan Eisenberg Joins Editorial Board of New Cambridge Journal

CSDE Affiliate Dan Eisenberg and Associate Professor of Anthropology Dan Eisenberg joined the editorial board of the new Cambridge University Press journal Experimental Results.

Experimental Results is a new open access journal providing a forum for experimental findings that disclose the small incremental steps vitally important to experimental research; experiments and findings which have so far remained hidden. Such results often go unpublished due to the traditional scholarly communication process, in which only a select group of experiments are chosen to make up the narrative of a single paper.
