STICERD news:
Camille Landais awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant

Published/Broadcast 22 April 2021

Camille Landais has been awarded a European Research Council Consolidator Grant for the project "GENEQUALITY". The project will run for 5 years (2021-2026) and aims to understand the root causes of the strong specialization in gender roles at the arrival of children, how this affects gender inequality, and what can/should be done about it.

Professor Landais said: "I am just absolutely elated. One of the exciting dimensions of the project will be its use of new techniques from the natural language processing literature to offer new measures of gender norms, and uncover the way they are formed and affected by policies."
