CSDE Seminar Series

Beyond the Nuclear Family: Children and Shared Living Arrangements

     When:  Friday, Oct 12, 2018 (12:30-1:30 PM)
     Where:  121 Raitt Hall

Natasha Pilkauskas, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan

Children’s living arrangements are increasingly diverse and complex, and a robust body of research has documented links between living arrangements, economic wellbeing, and child outcomes. Despite increasing recognition of the diversity in children’s living arrangements most research continues to focus on the nuclear family. This talk draws on a number of published and papers in progress that focus on shared living arrangements of children in the U.S.–examining the people children live with beyond their nuclear family.

If you would like to schedule a time to meet Prof. Pilkauskas this week, please sign up here.

Janelle Taylor Receives Supplement Award to Continue Research on Dementia

Congratulations to Janelle Taylor, CSDE faculty affiliate in Anthropology, who received an Administrative Supplement to her NIA-funded project, “Health Outcomes for Patients with Dementia without Family Caregivers”.

This study uses data from the Adult Changes in Thought (ACT) study, an ongoing prospective longitudinal study of dementia at Kaiser Permanente (formerly Group Health).  The supplement was the result of finding a rich new source of information about family and caregiving support for older adults with dementia: The narrative medical documents created for the diagnostic review meeting contain much information about the patient’s social context even though the original purpose of the documents is to provide diagnostic medical information.
