Demography and environment in historical perspective

7 – 9 November 2024


The Italian Society of Historical Demography dedicates its triennial conference to the relationship between population and environment. Environmental influences on population growth and decline are numerous, and the proposed sessions are a clear testimony to this. Continuing a tradition of established studies – dating back to the April 1987 conference dedicated to Population, Society, and Environment – and prompted by new and ongoing issues, we invite the scientific community to participate in our event hosted by the University of Bari from November 7th to 9th, 2024.
The conference will be structured into eight sessions outlined below, from which interested participants are free to choose. Contributions in the form of extended abstracts should be sent no later than June 15th, 2024, to the session organizers, with a copy to the SIDeS secretary, Gabriele Ruiu, at Specifically, the abstract should ideally be structured with an introduction, data and methods, expected results, and should not exceed 5000 characters (including spaces). Multiple sessions can be indicated, but with a preference order.
The outcome of the submission will be communicated by mid-July 2024.
