Theme Summary: 

Developmental trajectories and outcomes can be understood only within the context of the macrosystems in which individuals develop (e.g., see Bronfenbrenner, 1994). Our contemporary macrosystem is especially replete with challenges. Some (like COVID) are newly emerging; others (like racism and environmental injustice) are long-standing, but increasingly visible to greater swaths of humankind. The SSHD 2021-22 Conference Series— Macrosystem Challenges to Lifespan Human Development—is designed to share and encourage scholarship that advances conceptualizations of macrosystem challenges, methodologies for studying them, and strategies for reducing or navigating such challenges.

 We look forward to seeing you at the SSHD 2021-22 Series!
