Mission Statement

#Parenting is a Rackham Interdisciplinary Workshop (RIW) that provides a forum for faculty and graduate students to address issues related to parenting research. The workshop aims to provide an intellectually stimulating environment that promotes cross disciplinary dialogue, information sharing, and collaboration between faculty and graduate students studying parenting. The workshop also aims to discover and apply various methodologies to the study of parenting. The topics of interest vary widely. For example, members of the workshop are interested in studying the intersection between parenting and social media, influence of genetics and social environments on parenting behaviors, and changes in parenting norms related to fatherhood.
