Elinore Avni named 2023 Pardee Center Graduate Summer Fellow
The Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future announced Sociology PhD candidate Elinore Avni as one of its 2023 Graduate Summer Fellows. Elinore is one of eight outstanding Boston University graduate students representing four different schools or colleges and eight different academic departments.
Starting May 30, the Graduate Summer Fellows will spend 10 weeks developing research papers to be considered for publication by the Pardee Center while participating in programs designed to advance interdisciplinary research and learning with Pardee Center affiliated faculty, visiting researchers, and other invited guests.
Elinore will study the ways in which older adults and children — two dependent population groups — are perceived and taken care of in different countries. She will explore how various factors, such as national context, religious affiliation, age, and gender, shape attitudes toward the provision of eldercare and childcare.
