Place and Time: East Indies House B 0.19 15.30 - 17.00

The group Institutions, Inequalities, and Life courses (IIL) meets biweekly to present and discuss work in progress.

At every meeting a PhD candidate, a staff member or a guest speaker gives a short introduction to a paper they are currently working on which is followed by the comments of a pre-assigned discussant. The floor is then open for a roundtable discussion. Copies of the papers are sent out prior to the meetings.
