Local Population Studies Society
The Local Population Studies Society (LPSS) is the United Kingdom's only charity solely devoted to the promotion of all aspects of historical demography in a local context. It publishes the internationally renowned journal Local Population Studies, and has an eclectic publications programme. LPSS organizes themed conferences on topics related to local populations in the past. Members of LPSS receive two copies of the journal and two newsletters each year, membership of the LPSS Book Club and advance notice of the LPSS conferences.
This website contains information about the Society and its outputs. The main feature of this site is the archive of back issues of the journal Local Population Studies. The issues covering publication from 1968 to 2011 are available free of charge on this site, though the Society welcomes orders for print copies of both those present on this site and those presently unavailable on this site.
"Historical demography - the local dimension - retrospect and prospect" will take place on Saturday 21st April 2018 in the Department of Geography, Downing Place, Cambridge, CB2 3EN.
The programme includes a series of papers, a closing panel discussion, and a drinks reception and presentation from CAMPOP to launch their new interactive website: 'Populations Past – Atlas of Victorian and Edwardian Population'.
A programme, with booking form, is available from the conference page.
Committee member Gillian Chiverton is editor of the LPSS Newsletter. She would warmly welcome any contributions. Please email contributions to email@example.com.
Details of the Roger Schofield Local Population Studies Research Fund are now available on this site.
