Invited talk: EHESS Paris

Population and Place Research Lab Director Maxwell Hartt presented ongoing research examining the interrelated geographies of aging and shrinking cities in the Global North at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (Paris, France). It was a great chance to discuss two of Dr. Hartt’s favourite subjects (shrinking, aging) and also a wonderful chance to meet with Population and Place Research Lab affiliated researcher Dr. Beatriz Fernandez (and her students).

Dr. Hartt’s presentation was one of several during this Journée d’étude focused on aging, shrinking, and territorial/demographic transformations. A pleasure to hear about work in France and Germany, and the many similarities (and differences) between the different contexts.
