March 2, 2012: Gender and Family in the New Millennium:

As the economic lives of men and women have converged, families have become both highly diverse and socioeconomically stratified in the United States and other countries. “Gender and Family in the New Millennium”, a day-long research workshop presented by the new Leonard and Gretchan Broom Center for Demography, will be held on the UCSB campus on Friday, March 2, 2012. This event brings together a group of leading scholars in sociology and economics who study the nature and origins of gender inequality in modern society and the economic, social and cultural influences that help shape contemporary work and family life. This will be the first in a series of Broom Center multidisciplinary research conferences exploring the frontiers of social science research on human populations.
