„Care-Practices of Fathers in International Comparison: Do Policies Matter?“ at the Hochschule Landshut, Germany, January 16-18, 2020.

The International Father Research Conference "Care-Practices of Fathers in International Comparison: Do Policies Matter?" 

takes place at the Hochschule Landshut (near Munich) in Germany, January 16-18, 2020.

Scholars from a variety of European countries (including the U.K., Iceland, Lithuania, Sweden, Spain and Hungary), China and the U.S. will present recent research findings. The thematic focus is on the tensions among paternal everyday practices and gender-based welfare state structures in the context of diverse family forms, critical life events and legal requirements. The keynote speaker is Prof. Dr. Barbara Hobson from Stockholm University.

A special goal of the DFG sponsored conference is also the establishment of an international research network and the establishment of transnational cooperation. This will be facilitated by the exchange of ideas in reflection groups (small breakout sessions for researchers with similar research interests) after each session. The last day is dedicated to providing opportunities for networking and collaboration.
