The goal of the Association for Young Historical Demographers is to bring together junior scholars who investigate historical demographic processes. Young does therefore not refer to age, but more to a stage in one’s academic career. We especially welcome BA-students, MA-students, PhD-students, post-docs and other junior researchers to join this group. By offering a platform on which young historical demographers get the opportunity to exchange questions, ideas and their experience, we hope to strengthen the field of historical demography. Moreover, we hope this association will guarantee us having our own voice in the international community of Historical Demography.
We would like to invite you to the first meeting of the AYHD on Tuesday 20 September 2016 in Leuven at ‘Bar Del Sol’. Schapenstraat 105, 3000 Leuven, Belgium. During this meeting coffee, tea, drinks and snacks will be provided for free because of generous sponsoring from the research group ‘Life-course, Family and Labour’ of the N.W. Posthumus Institute. There is no entrance fee, but please register by emailing your name, position and affiliation to Tim Riswick before Tuesday 13-09-2016.
