The theme for this year’s conference is Social Inequality and Social Mobility in Comparative Perspective.  Papers on this theme are particularly welcome.  The conference will also feature regular sessions on all fields of stratification research (e.g. on intergenerational mobility, education, labor markets, gender, family, migration and ethnicity, economic inequality, poverty, life courses, health and well-being, political sociology, methodology); contributions relevant to the broad research agenda of the RC28 are also welcome. All scholars working in the field of social stratification and social mobility are invited to contribute papers for submission.

The deadline for submission is Friday, March 1, 2019. Acceptance is limited, so we encourage you to submit your extended abstract or full paper as soon as possible. Authors will be informed about the committee decision by May 1, 2019.

Through the generosity of the William T. Grant Foundation, we will award ten $1000 travel grants to graduate students of color who are currently enrolled in PhD programs in American universities so that they can attend the 2019 Summer RC28 Meeting at Princeton University.  The award is intended for students who are interested in the topic of social inequality and who may be interested in pursuing research on social inequality during their Ph.D. studies. We expect most of the applicants will be enrolled in Ph.D. programs in sociology, but we welcome applications from graduate students who are interested in inequality research from the other social science disciplines as well. We will require that applicants have an undergraduate degree from an American college or university to be eligible to apply for one of these awards.  While there is no expectation that the awardees present their research at the meeting, we would welcome presentations by the applicants to the WT Grant Travel Award Program.  Such applicants must contemporaneously submit a paper proposal.
