“Generational Overlap: Changing Demography and Shared Lifetimes” will be presented by Dr. Marcy Carlson, Professor of Sociology, University of Wisconsin–Madison.
Dr. Carlson will consider how changing demographic patterns (i.e., declining/delayed fertility and longer life expectancies) shape the prevalence of generational overlap, especially for children and grandparents. Generational overlap in the form of shared lifetimes represents a fundamental condition guiding whether and how kin relationships across generations may develop and how resources may be shared—with notable variation by socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, and family complexity.
