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.
