The organizing committee of the Transforming care 2019 conference now invites you to submit your abstract to one or more of the 25 Thematic Panels. Call for Papers is open until Jan 31st, 2019.

The Transforming Care Conference series focusses on early child education and care, care for adults with disabilities and long-term care for older people. Four main dimensions of transforming care are addressed in the conference through parallel Thematic Panels and Symposia sessions:

-          Changes in the institutional setting of care systems and in care policy

-          The impact and dilemmas of social and policy innovation in care services

-          Changes in intergenerational care arrangements and informal care

-          Transformations affecting care workers and their working conditions

The 2019 conference will take place in Copenhagen June 24-26th and will have the overall theme of: Changing priorities: The making of care policy and practices. In addition to the Thematic Panels, there will be seven Symposia where identified speakers will present state-of-the-art of a particular and topical theme.

Within this conference, @menrolesproject has proposed a thematic panel on Men, work and care in contemporary families (more info here).

“In recent decades, the new social role of women, female educational advancement, and the gradual weakening of men in the labor market, exacerbated by the recent financial and economic crisis, have strongly affected men’s identities and roles and their educational, labor, conjugal and reproductive trajectories. As a matter of fact, men have gone from being mere economic providers and protectors to adopting a larger and more significant role as caregivers in contemporary families. Caring is a competence that is acquired through dedication and practice, but learning to care is not offered equally to women and men in different social and public policy contexts. For instance, maternity and paternity leave often consider mothers and fathers differently and, therefore, do not take advantage of the human and care capital of both parents to enhance children’s wellbeing and gender equality. Consequently, women are absent longer from their jobs when children are born, which generally constitutes a penalty in their work trajectories. An increasing number of studies show, however, that men’s use of parental leave alone is associated with a greater long-term involvement in domestic and care tasks. In addition, men’s involvement may not only differ in terms of total time investments but also with regard to the dimensions of care in which women and men engage. The empirical evidence suggests that it is not so much the amount of time per se that matters for a father-child relationship but, rather, the extent to which men are transforming their identities and practices as fathers. This panel aims to analyze the role of men in family dynamics, with special emphasis on care. We will study the changes in men’s attitudes, values and behavior concerning both their breadwinner and nurturing role over time. Special attention will be paid to comparative studies, those that investigate the new role of men as partners, parents and care providers from a longitudinal approach, and those that deal in a novel way with theoretical, methodological or political issues about nurturing and practical care. Studies that address the importance of men being involved in the care of children and/or dependants, as well as the potential of public policies and normative changes in workplaces for the encouragement of shared caring responsibilities and the promotion of family life-work balance for both women and men will also be appreciated.”

We look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen in June 2019!

We are looking forward to attending the conference “Changing Gender Inequalities, Changing Families?”, which will be held in Leuven, Belgium, on 7-8 December 2017.

Our talk will focus on the relationship between education and men’s involvement in homework and child care. In particular, we will present a joint paper entitled Studying Care, Doing Care: Does Type of Education Affect Men’s Involvement in Unpaid Work? A Comparison between Norway, Austria and Poland. Among the vast literature on the gender division of unpaid work and the so-called “new fathers”, it is a consolidated evidence that not only her but also his level of education matter. However, although shown relevant for other behaviors such as first union or first child, to the best of our knowledge no study has so far examined the role of type of education for men’s share of domestic and care work. By drawing from the Generation and Gender Survey and by comparing three countries (Norway, Austria and Poland) with distinctive cultural and institutional settings, in this paper we focus on couples with young children and we explore whether, controlling for his and her level of education and labor market position, there is a higher time involvement in unpaid work among men trained in fields in which a large majority of students are women and where traditional stereotypical female qualities prevail such as those concerned with the care of individuals and/or which emphasize interpersonal skills compared to those in male-dominated technical fields.

This conference will be the closing event of the interesting project “Implications of the Shifting Gender Balance in Education for Reproductive Behaviour in Europe” (GENDERBALL), funded by the European Research Council under the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme. The conference will take place at the Faculty Club in Leuven and currently there are about 50 confirmed participants from Europe and North America.

We thank Jan Van Bavel, principal investigator of the project, for this invitation.

Seminar “Fathers’ involvement in family life: changing cross-national differences”

By Oriel Sullivan

Turin 27/10/2016

Network for the Advancement of Social and Political Studies



In this presentation I examine the changing nature of fathers’ contributions to family life, focusing particularly on fathers’ changing contributions to housework and childcare in different welfare state regimes, and on the changing effect of education on fathers’ contributions in low fertility countries. While there is a relatively substantial literature on cross-sectional differences in father’s investment between subgroups of the population, and rather less on overall changes over time in fathers’ contributions, there is still relatively little research that takes as its focus the way that differences between subgroups change over time. The idea is that by observing such changes we can understand more about the underlying processes of change.




Who cares? Who shares? Men as agents and beneficiaries in gender equality policies.

Curso de verano UAM “Relaciones de género y nuevas masculinidades”:

“Desde las ciencias sociales surgen nuevos paradigmas que aportan enfoques teóricos referidos al cambio social. En el ámbito de la docencia universitaria es importante desarrollar contenidos que aborden pautas de comportamiento y conducta en relación con la igualdad de género. En este marco aparecen temáticas que por su relevancia e impacto social deben ser tratadas y abordadas de manera integral, como es el caso de la violencia de género.

La violencia contra las mujeres es la última consecuencia de la desigualdad que se establece entre mujeres y hombres, la cual se sustenta en la construcción de la masculinidad y la feminidad y en cómo se define la relación que se genera entre ambos. La erradicación de la violencia de género supone el verdadero reto del siglo XXI. La Universidad, como agente social, debe combatir la violencia sexista analizando sus causas para poder eliminarlas desde la raíz.

Mediante el curso de verano se pretende, por un lado, analizar los patrones y conductas que definen la masculinidad en su conjunto, así como las consecuencias generales que supone el ejercicio de la misma para nuestra sociedad. Paralelamente, se busca, que de forma constructiva, se propongan nuevos modelos sobre masculinidades y relaciones de género desde la óptica de los derechos humanos, que promuevan sociedades más justas y equitativas, donde mujeres y hombres puedan ocupar todos los espacios en iguales condiciones para el desarrollo, ejercicio y aporte de sus capacidades.”
