The Centre for Research on Families, Life Course and Generations has an international reputation for research excellence and for developing cutting edge research methods. Much of our research engages with socio-economic inequalities and the interplay of social experience and large scale social change, particularly in areas relating to youth, schooling, vocational and higher education, education to labour market transitions, parenting and family life, inter-generational relationships, sex and relationship education, and autism across the life course. We hold expertise in diverse methodological approaches and are particularly well known for shaping UK research methods infrastructure in the area of qualitative longitudinal research and qualitative data archiving, notably through ESRC Timescapes. FLaG also offers a hub for inter-disciplinary events and collaborations, building on the research activities and interests of academics in different departments across the University of Leeds. We have close links with the Inequalities Research Network. Examples of our research projects are listed below.
