European Sociological Association - Sociology of Families and Intimate Lives research network by Katy Barbier-Greenland

The European Sociological Association research network that I'm a part of, Sociology of Families and Intimate Lives, has just published a callout for my project in their Spring newsletter! It's only emailed out to members, not published anywhere online, so I haven't been able to link it.

This research network is all about family sociology and supports research in this area on a wide range of topics including family forms, marriage and cohabitation, multicultural and transnational families, same-sex couples and rainbow families, family planning and fertility, infertility and reproductive technologies, parenting, mothering and fathering practices, intergenerational relationships and kinship networks,  cultural understandings of family, theories and methodologies of research on families and many more.

As previously blogged, I'm going to be attending their 2018 conference, 'Families Known and Unknown', at the University of Kuopio in Finland in June, and will share updates on the presentations. 

Thanks ESA!

Federation of Family History Societies - callout in newsletter by Katy Barbier-Greenland

The Federation of Family History Societies has published my participant callout in their newsletter. This newsletter is released every two months, and if you're interested you can sign up here.

The FFHS is an educational charity with over 160 member societies throughout the world, focusing on topics related to ancestry, family history and genealogy. I think they have a special focus on the UK, but there are links to sister organisations worldwide, including the Australian equivalent. Loads of resources available through their site. 

Thanks FFHS!

Hello, world! by Katy Barbier-Greenland

This month, I launched the data collection part of the project, creating a Facebook page to let people know about the project and invite participation. I'm so excited to be at this point in the project! Really looking forward to conducting interviews and speaking with people about their family secret stories.

Interested in taking part? Details on the Call for participants page. 

Let the interviews begin!
