Demography Daze WorkshopJune 13, 2013
Demography (“Days”) Daze is a collaboration between the Carolina Population Center (CPC) and the Duke Population Research Institute (DuPRI). This is the second annual afternoon workshop where we will share ideas across our centers and highlight collaborative research. Our use of Daze is meant to capture the “dazzle” and “splendor” of innovative ideas and new techniques/technologies (not the firstt offered Webster definition, “to stun or stupefy”!). And if there is a lazy summer daze, then it is in early June, when our calendars are probably less crammed. So please join us on the afternoon and evening of June 13. This year’s program features Anatoliy Yashin and Paul Voss, both recent winners of career awards given by the Population Association of America. The sessions will be at the Carolina Population Center and the reception/dinner will be held at the Mediterranean Deli at 410 W. Franklin Street. Workshop details here
