A central theme of the course is the diversity in patterns of partnership and family life leading to the change of family size and structure in contemporary western societies. The first part of the course focus on the exploration of the demographic and social foundation of populational ageing, especially on the decline of fertility rates and changing family formations patterns. It discusses the challenges of growing ageing population and their implications for the individual and family. Second part of the course examines intergenerational relationships. Concepts of solidarity and care are critically discussed to explore the patterns of caregiving in ageing families. The course looks on how family relationship are reconstructed and organized, emphasizing people’s agency in the process of “doing” family.
