It will also consider the gendered dimensions of educational participation outcomes in the light of these changed labour market conditions. Deadline for submission of a 300-word abstract for consideration: 8 April 2018.

2016 Annual Meeting of the Eastern Sociological Society
The Boston Park Plaza Hotel and Towers

Gender plays a profound role in the way in which we all experience everyday life. Work, a major facet of society, is deeply affected by gender. While the wage gap between men and women has decreased over the past several decades, it persists nonetheless. This session is looking for research that examine gender disparities in both unpaid and paid work and how these disparities affect everyone’s lives (regardless of gender) and society at large. Papers that focus on uncovering issues such as wage gap, traditional gender roles, and gendered jobs are encouraged. Please submit abstracts (not longer than 250 words) to Deniz Yucel  ( Deadline for abstract submission: October 25, 2015.
