Dear colleagues and
I wanted to let
you know that the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS) has
decided to include the special session on historical demography in the
program of the European Population Conference 2001. This conference will be
held in Helsinki 7-9 June 2001.
this initiative gives everybody working on the history of European
populations, family history, sources and methods in historical demography
and in all of the fields in population studies where historical approaches
are productive, the opportunity to meet and to discuss face to face the
results, methods and new lines in their researches.
organizer of this session, I invite you to participate and to inform
those of your colleagues who could be interested in presenting their
studies. I see our session as an open forum where all topics relative to
historical demography as well as demographic history could be presented.
This diversification may display not only the general state of “classic”
research , but also shed light on new lines of the development in historical
work of our session in the EAPS Conference 2001 can provide the background
for initiating more than one session on historical demography in the program
of the future European Conferences which, as you know, the EAPS organizes
To announce your
participation in the EAPS Conference 2001, you are invited to send the preliminary
