Friday Luncheon Seminars

The Harvard Pop Center are pleased to sponsor a Friday Luncheon Seminar series focused on salient issues in population health, demography, and economics. These informal gatherings serve as opportunities for researchers to garner important feedback from others working in similar areas.

We offer a mix of presentations—from standard research dissemination by Pop Center members, to work-in-progress sessions by junior scholars, to research methodology seminars by our staff.

Sessions are scheduled on Fridays from 12:00–1:00 at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies, 9 Bow Street, Cambridge, MA. Please note that these seminars will be taking place online for fall 2021.

All Harvard faculty, researchers and students are welcome to attend. If you would like to receive emails with registration information, please contact Laura Price.
