POPFest - Call for Papers


POPFest needs you, POPFest needs your paper! This years POPFest has now put out a call for papers. Already the new website is worth a visit and you will get the paper details details HERE as well as submission guidelines HERE.
POPFest, in case you haven’t heard of it before, is the annual Population Studies Conference for postgraduate students. It says on the website: “It is open to postgraduates from all disciplines studying any aspect of population and demography and provides a supportive and stimulating environment for students to meet, present their work and exchange ideas.”
The conference is organised by postgraduates for postgraduates and this year it will be hosted by the University of St. Andrews together with the University of Dundee. It will be over three days from 28th to the 30th of June 2010.
I did attend this years POPFest at LSE in London and presented the paper ‘The Spatial Extension of Everydaylife’. It is a great experience for me and a very supportive context. Oral presentations will be 15 minutes long with 5 minutes for questions. There is usually also a session with posters.
