26th conference of the German Educational Research Association

  • University Duisburg-Essen, Campus Essen 2 Universitätsstraße Essen, NRW, 45141 Germany (map)

I will be giving a presentation on elementary school children’s afternoon activities in various settings that are not supervised by adults. The research question that I am investigating with co-author Tanja Betz addresses the transmission of cultural capital within the family. We ask how children’s agency can be accounted for when conceptualizing family based inter-generational cultural reproduction. We will also present an exploratory path model showing how children’s own activities relate to broader socialization processes in the family and to their success in school. This research is part of the project EDUCAREplus and the data come from the quantitative questionnaire study that we conducted in 2012/2013 as part of the EDUCARE-study.
