Lives change over time and how migrants view their lives changes also. On the one hand, the lives of these migrants were tough: the Irish and the Polish men worked in manual jobs in the UK, many in the harsh, precarious and dangerous conditions of the construction industry. On the other hand, both groups looked back on their lives as successful. These stories challenge the popular view that migration is problematic and necessarily a social problem and bear witness to the significant contribution that migration brings to a society over the long term.
Most of all they set store by the success of their children. Indeed upward occupational mobility is the legacy that the Irish grandfathers passed on to the Irish second generation, success also assisted by selective religious schooling and strong mothering.
Such discrimination was meted out to others, they said, but not to themselves. So too the Polish fathers, looking back across a shorter time frame, stressed their achievements as migrants in the face of the many difficulties as they struggled with the English language and with finding work, affordable housing and good Roman Catholic schools for their children.
But because their migration was more recent, they were more mindful of and less reticent about being discriminated against than the Irish. Unlike the Irish, who perhaps saw migration as final because of its distance, the Poles viewed migration as a temporary phase. Tuesday 9 June This one day conference will be a tribute to Professor Bren Neale at the point of her retirement, and a celebration of her contributions to research, policy and practice relating to childhood, life course studies, family and welfare, qualitative longitudinal research, and data archiving and re-use. In the morning we offer presentations showcasing the scope for qualitative data re-use and secondary analysis, through advancing research in the areas of family, generation and the life course.
In the afternoon we offer presentations on researching temporal processes with reference to theory, qualitative longitudinal methodology and family and life course research. We bring together some leading proponents in these fields, both as speakers and participants, and will explore research, current conditions and opportunities, and directions for the future. In developing a repository for qualitative longitudinal data, the Timescapes Project articulated a stakeholder model for archiving and sharing data.

In that model, archiving and reuse of data were integrated with data generation, from the very beginning of research design. This was enabled through consultation among those generating data, those reusing data and often linking it to new sources , and data curators.

In the nearly ten years since the inception of Timescapes more data of varied forms has accumulated, as have the systems and tools for its analysis. Potential applications for data have expanded rapidly, but privacy concerns have grown as fast or faster.

Moreover, new algorithmic methods and data linkage may be calling into question current procedures for anonymisation and de-identification. In the face of these challenges, there are calls to ground data initiatives in a fundamental respect for persons and human rights.
The stakeholder model took a significant step in this direction-connecting and building trust among data producers, users and curators-in order to make data available for research that would otherwise have remained inaccessible. Now it may be necessary to consider expanding our approach to embrace all those with morally relevant interests in future uses of data if the full potential of data is to be realised.

In the UK, as elsewhere in Europe, levels of youth unemployment are disturbing and currently stand at a rate of However, the vulnerability of young people, and concerns about their plight, is not a new phenomenon. In unemployment among 16—24 year olds reached Drawing on our experience of secondary data analysis of both qualitative and quantitative historical data sources, this paper highlights the importance of fieldnotes, paradata and marginalia when revisiting studies from the past.
We will use examples from three historical studies of youth employment, from the s and s, to illustrate the importance of these by-products of social research to the secondary analyst. However, we should be cautious about drawing inferences about the character or quality of family ties — and about the ways in which they may have changed over time — from data about the demographic availability of kin.

Research on family configurations has further shown that the importance of kinship relationships varies across the life course but whether that pattern was similar or different in earlier periods remains unclear. This paper presents a qualitative longitudinal analysis of the changing textures and meanings of family configurations in different historical periods and at different life course stages, drawing on in-depth life story interviews with three birth cohorts of Irish people from the Life Histories and Social Change study, deposited in the Irish Qualitative Data Archive.
Through an analysis of the retrospective personal network schedules collected from each of the participants, I first develop a typology of life course family configurations within and across the three cohorts.
