    Contemporary Perspectives in Family Research

    Contemporary Perspectives in Family Research, an annual series which
    focuses upon cutting-edge topics in family research around the
    globe, is seeking manuscript submissions for its 2019 volume.
    The 2019 volume of CPFR will focus on the theme of ‘Transitions into
    Parenthood: Childbearing, Childrearing, and the Changing Nature of

    Around the globe, the very conceptualization of family is associated
    with the relationship between a parent and a child. The birth of a
    child represents both the end of one experience, wherein parents
    have been preparing for the arrival of the child, and also the
    beginning of yet another experience, involving the rearing of the
    child. Entry into parenthood represents a fundamental shift in
    family structure and family dynamics. Furthermore, these decision to
    have a child has substantial bearing upon the larger society,
    particularly in regards to population issues. Quite obviously, the
    two components of childbearing and childrearing vary considerably
    across cultures, and over time, and each of these continues to
    change. In order to better understand the transitions into
    parenthood, this multidisciplinary volume of CPFR will address such
    topics as: employment and fertility, socioeconomic status and
    parenting styles, the role of ICTs in the transition into
    parenthood, childbearing desires versus childbearing outcomes, the
    social media construction of parenthood, predictors of fertility
    preferences, the social construction of parenthood through
    consumption practices, gender differences in childrearing,
    infertility and fertility clinics, migration and fertility patterns,
    parental discipline and child outcomes, and non-parental
    childrearing, among others.

    The 2019 volume will be coedited by Rosalina Pisco Costa of the
    University of Évora (Portugal) and Sampson Lee Blair of The State
    University of New York (USA).
