■ Venue: Center conference room (549), Akamon General Research Building, University of Tokyo (Hongo Campus) MAP

■ Title: A Job Market for Unmarried People?
■ Speaker: Romain Huret (Historian, Vice-president, EHESS: School for Advanced Studies, France)
■ Abstract:
This lecture revises our current understanding of job markets by looking at unmarried people. By analyzing marriage bars and temporary jobs, I will show how marriage has been a dividing line in many professions (nursing, teaching). If this lecture is mainly focused on the United States, I will look at other countries, especially France and Japan.
