The 3rd Doing Transitions International Conference will address “Relational Perspectives on the Life Course” and aims at bringing together the Doing Transitions research group with other researchers concerned with conducting research on life course transitions in a reflexive and relational perspective. The concept of relationality will be discussed in terms of different theoretical dimensions and methodological aspects of transitions across the life course. Presentations and keynotes will include Daniela Grunow (Goethe University), Eric Widmer (University of Geneva), Silke van Dyk (University of Jena), and Rick A. Settersten Jr. (Oregon State University).
