Roger Schofield Memorial Conference

Our annual conference for 2020 was held on Zoom on Saturday 12 September. You can see recordings of the presentations given by the speakers over on our our conference pages and many of the papers are being published in full in Local Population Studies.

About the Society

The Local Population Studies Society (LPSS) is a charity devoted to promoting local history, social history, and historical demography in a local context. We publish the journal Local Population Studies, and other books and edited collections from time to time. We also hold two conferences a year, usually on a particular theme related to populations in the past, and welcome contributions from speakers at all stages of their research.

Members of LPSS receive two copies of the journal and two newsletters each year, membership of the LPSS Book Club and advance notice and a discounted rate for the conferences.

This site contains information about the Society, our journal and publications, and our conferences. We also host an archive of back issues of LPS. The Society decided to make the issues from 1968 to 2011 freely available on this site, and more recent articles are available free of charge for members, or for a small charge to non-members, from the Editor. Please contact editor@localpopulationstudies.org.uk to order past articles.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with a member of the Committee.
