Family solidarity at work : one century in Quebec Women are known to be the backbone of family solidarity. This is a well-documented fact. Yet, despite this empirical evidence, family solidarity has barely been investigated in a gender perspective, especially when compared to research on domestic work, or, more recently, research on care. This pape...

Il existe en France une longue tradition d’étude de la mobilité sociale, mais pendant longtemps les processus de transmission professionnelle au sein des familles n’ont été étudiés que de père en fils. Au Canada, ces analyses sont moins fréquentes, en raison du peu de données disponibles et parce que les nomenclatures se prêtent difficilement à un...
Chapter
The topic of intergenerational family solidarity which is the focus of unprecedented interest for both policy makers and researchers, has promoted numerous studies centred on the bonds that unite generations and the dynamics of family solidarity through time. The notion of time is thus central to this field of research. In this chapter, after an ov...

In Québec, the 2004 survey Biographies et solidarités familiales (‘biographies and family solidarity in Québec’) was the first quantitative survey to deal with the question of the diverse forms of family solidarity as they have changed over time and in line with modifications in family, work, and public policies. Our purpose here is to present the...

Les transformations de la famille contemporaine suscitent un ensemble de questions concernant notamment la definition de ce qu’est une « famille » aujourd’hui. Les criteres statistiques officiels, le critere residentiel entre autres, rendent difficilement compte de la realite des liens qui unissent les membres d’un groupe familial. A partir de donn...

Résumé Dans La volonté de savoir , Michel Foucault attribue à la démographie un rôle central dans la mise en place de nouvelles techniques de pouvoir, ce qu’il a appelé la biopolitique de la population. Or, cette vision de la démographie comme réponse à la nécessité de modifier les techniques de « pouvoir sur la vie », en même temps que s’étendait...

... This came mainly as a result of the decrease in celibacy, especially among well-educated women, at a time when educational achievement was on the rise everywhere. Work on Sweden (Sandström 2014 and2017), Belgium ( Van Bavel 2014), and Canada (Kempeneers and Van Pevenage 2015;Gauvreau and Laplante 2016b) has also emphasized the significant reconfiguration of reproductive labour during the baby boom that resulted in much larger proportions of women marrying and giving birth. These findings point to the driving force of transformations in marriage patterns during the boom, with fertility changes playing a more heterogeneous role, dependent on the levels observed before the onset of the boom, as suggested by Van Bavel and Reher (2013). ...
... La réforme du 0 . système d'éducation québécois ainsi que les transformations du marché du travail, entre autres, ont fortement _contribué à l'intensité des ch~ngements qui ont eu une incidence profonde dans les trajectoires des femmes baby-boomers (Kempeneers et al., 2015). Les données recueillies dans cette thèse permettent de postuler dans le même sens, à savoir que cette intensification s'est également répercutée dans la proportions de femmes québécoises de cette génération qui n'ont pas eu d'enfants. ...
... Indeed, family forms of solidarity are seriously tempered by time: time as a historical element, i.e. the evolution of the work environment, of the family, and of public policies, and biographical time, i.e. measuring individual and family trajectories. It is the conjunction of these two temporal levels that endlessly structures and restructures the social spaces where various forms of solidarity will unfurl in accordance with the layout of family models and with the alternatives offered by the workplace and by public authority at different times (Kempeneers et al. 2007). ...
... Note that the survey Proches et Parents did not investigate the relationships among network members, as it focuses on relationships between an ego and his/her alters. In Quebec, the survey Biographies et solidarités familiales au Québec (biographies and solidarities in Quebec) also investigated personal relationships by studying the evolution of family solidarities (Kempeneers and Van Pevenage 2011). The emphasis was put on four different spaces, one shared by relatives, one to express affinities, the space of sociability, and a geographic space. ...
... The preliminary ground of this social process is family. The family networks are critical generative sources of inculcating gender identities and allow these gender performances in their networks which are later practiced in other domains as well (Kempeneers, & Pevenage, 2013). ...
... Ownership changes can be used to develop the business, develop the relationships between family members, or provide family members with the ability to carry out individual ventures. (Kempeneers and Lelièvre, 2007). ...
