Call for Papers: International Seminar on Urban Health Transformations

Conference date(s): 11 July 2017 - 12 July 2017

The IUSSP Panel on Historical Demography invites any paper which investigates the transformation of urban health or demographic regimes and hope to gather a programme which will allow comparisons of a range of places which experienced urban growth of different speeds and characters, or with different disease environments. The panel welcomes papers addressing a wide spectrum of historical eras from the earliest cities up to the present day, and from all continents. Contributions from a variety of aspects including: the demographic risks of mortality and ill-health for individuals, groups and places, and the development of institutions and infrastructure and the health environment are welcome. Studies focusing on particular components of mortality (e.g. by age or cause) are encouraged as well as those which investigate less easily measured aspects of health. Also welcome those who can examine the spatial details of urban health using GIS, and those who aim to shed light on the role of migration. Deadline for submissions: 30 September 2016.
