Jessica Halliday Hardie: Best Laid Plans: Women Coming of Age in Uncertain Times
January 13, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
On January 13, 2023, Jessica Halliday Hardie will present “Best Laid Plans: Women Coming of Age in Uncertain Times” as part of the Carolina Population Center’s 2022-2023 Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series.
Jessica Hardie is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Hunter College. She received her Ph.D. in Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in Family Demography and Individual Development at Penn State University.
She specializes in the areas of sociology of education, inequality, family, health, and the transition to adulthood, and her research explores factors that explain the intergenerational transmission of inequality at several stages in the life course. She has conducted qualitative and quantitative research on adolescent social capital, race and racism in high school, economic resources and romantic relationship quality among cohabiting and married couples, and the relationship between maternal health and child wellbeing. She is currently working on a longitudinal qualitative study of class and race differences in young women’s transitions to adulthood, with attention to how they balance work, school, and family life during this period.
