Hosted by the PAA History Committee:
John Weeks (Chair and PAA Historian), Win Brown, Karen Hardee, Dennis Hodgson, and Emily Merchant.
This is the second in our series of webinar panels featuring three PAA Past Presidents reviewing the main points of their respective PAA Presidential addresses and commenting on how demographic and social changes have evolved since then. Could they give essentially the same address today and have it still be true? Why or why not?
We encourage everyone who is going to ''attend" this session to review in advance the PAA history interview with each of the Past Presidents, and to read the published version of their presidential address. These files are available on the PAA website: https://www.populationassociation.org/about/officers-directors/past-presidents .
