BIO

Prof. Connidis’ primary research interest is family ties and aging. Her work on ambivalence in family ties has been applied to many aspects of family relationships over the life course. She has explored conceptual, research and policy issues related to the connection of family ties to larger social processes and structures including gender and class; gay and lesbian adults’ ongoing relationships with their family of origin; sibling ties; and balancing work and family.
