4th Conference Of The European Society Of Historical Demography

We are pleased to present you all the information regarding the ESHD2022 conference that will take place in Madrid from March 2 to 5, 2022 hosted by The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC).

We hope to celebrate the conference in a relaxed way that will allow the participants to enjoy all the activities that will take place during the days of the conference.

Thank you very much for reserving the time for this conference in your agenda.

We look forward to welcoming you in March in Madrid!

It has been over a year since the COVID-19 outbreak has been declared a pandemic and a public health emergency of global concern. While researchers in all disciplines and from all parts of the world have increasingly turned to the question of how we confront today’s unfolding epidemiological crisis, using broad historical lenses and a long empirical research tradition of historical demography can contribute substantially to this debate. With this in mind, we would like to announce that the 4th ESHD conference leading theme is:

Human–environmental nexus in the past: understanding links between demographic variability, ecology, and disease.

Participants are encouraged to engage with and link across three different streams of historical social science analysis:

The diversity of historical demographic behaviour across space and time

The study of historical health, disease and morbidity conditions

Human-environmental interactions in the past
