Contexts of Social Inequality

Interdisciplinary Conference

This interdisciplinary two-day conference explores the role of contexts in the production and reproduction of social inequality.

Contexts matter for individual and aggregate outcomes because they channel opportunities and define choices. Contexts connect individuals or segregate them from each other. Contexts include neighborhoods, networks, families, schools, workplaces, and nations.

This conference brings together economists and sociologists, for an interdisciplinary exchange of theory, evidence, and methodology.
