Parenting, well being and inequalities network

FLaG is bringing together a network of researchers with shared interests in the area ‘parenting, well-being and inequalities’. We are members of different departments and faculties, and keen to develop new collaborations, building on commonalities and differences across our diverse disciplinary perspectives, at Leeds University. We are running a series of 4 internal workshops through the winter and spring of 2015, with a focus on:

  1. The historical and cultural making of contemporary parenting and parent-child relationships;
  2. Maternal and infant health and well being;
  3. Young parenting, especially fatherhood / caring practices and social exclusions, and intersections with policy;
  4. The intersection of parenting and welfare, social work and legal services.
