PopFest is an annual Population Studies conference for graduate and postgraduate students organised by fellow postgraduates. The conference was held for the first time in 1993 at the University of Southampton (see previous events). It provides an excellent opportunity to bring together PhD students from various Social Science disciplines such as Sociology, Demography, Human Geography, Economics, Social Anthropology, Social Statistics, Politics and other related fields.
Kinship Beyond the Household
While we know that World War I killed millions, analysis of its demographic effects on the surviving population has been relatively limited since studies by Louis Henry on France and Jay Winter on Britain in the 1960s and 1970s. The centenary of the Armistice will occur during this year's meeting of the Social Science History Association making it an especially appropriate time to consider the demographic impacts of the Great War.
A friendly reminder that submissions for this year's SSHA Conference are due in two weeks on Friday, February 16. Proposed sessions are listed below, but new papers/sessions can be submitted as well.
