Sociologists to explore inequality at Annual Meeting in New York City, Aug. 10-13
Date:6/26/2013

tive technologies that have emerged primarily to assist those who face infertility such as invitro fertilization (IVF), intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) have exacerbated existing social inequalities. This panel will critically interrogate new reproductive technologies by drawing on case studies from the global north and south to theorize stratified reproduction in transnational terms.

  • Shifting Meanings of Family and Work
    Tuesday, Aug. 13, 12:30 2:10 PM (Sheraton, Central Park East, 2nd Floor)

    Definitions of families, of work, and of work-family issues are dynamic and evolving. Family structures and care responsibilities are being reshaped by the aging workforce, marital disruption, declining fertility, and non-traditional family forms. Similarly, employment conditions are changing as workers and employers face often competing needs for flexibility and schedule control. Is there hope for more family supportive organizational cultures? The shifting meanings of family and work present new challenges and opportunities for integrating work and family responsibilities. This session will highlight research on the changing meanings of families, demographic shifts in family structure, increasing intergenerational care responsibilities, the impact of work schedules and flexibility on the interface of work and family life, and the potential for creating more family-supportive workplace cultures.
