Demography Daze is a unique annual workshop that brings together CPHA and Carolina Population Center (CPC) scholars, affiliates and students to encourage idea exchange among faculty and students and incentivize cutting-edge, collaborative population and Aging research. Each year, the Demography Daze agenda is carefully and collaboratively developed with the goal of featuring a broad range of population and Aging research carried out across both Centers to include students and faculty at various stages of professional development.
In 2019 Demography Daze featured Jenny Tung's work on Intergenerational Fitness Effects of Early Adversity in Wild Baboons and Scott Lynch's work on Regional, Racial, and Socioeconomic Disparities in Life Expectancy with Hearing Impairment in the US. Demography Daze Agendas for 2019 and earlier years can be found here.
Both CPC and the Duke University Population Research Institute (DUPRI) conduct Interdisciplinary research seminars featuring the work of nationally and internationally population scholars. These talks allow local researchers opportunities to discuss new ideas and engage in collaborative efforts. CPHA scholars identity and invite recognized Aging scholars to participate in the DUPRI seminar series, which are free and open to all attendees. The Center's scholars are often invited to present their work at the CPC seminar series, which is also open to all CPHA scholars and students.
