Demography of Race, Class, and Gender

A Stream on “Demography of Race, Class, and Gender”
as part of the 5th Annual International Conference on Demography and Population Studies
18-21 June 2018, Athens, Greece
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences

The Anthropology & Demography Unit of ATINER organizes a Stream on “Demography of Race, Class, and Gender” as part of the 5th Annual International Conference on Demography and Population Studies, 18-21 June 2018, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences.

This proposal is for the organization of a stream pertaining to the Demography of Race, Class, and Gender. The subject area of Demography, specifically as it relate to race, class, and gender, is important and relevant for scholars from a variety of disciplines and countries, and is not just limited to Sociologists in America. While demography is, at its core, the scientific study of human populations, there are more considerations that demographers and social scientists would be interested in aside from fertility, mortality, and migration. Race, class, and gender are all important demographic characteristics that have significant impacts on a variety of outcome variables. The purpose of this stream is to bring together demographers who have a major interest in the study of race, class, or gender, as it relates to demographic processes and procedures both within the United States and abroad.

You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.  

Fee structure information is available on

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.

The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) was established in 1995 as an independent world association of Academics and Researchers. Its mission is to act as a forum where Academics and Researchers from all over the world can meet in Athens, in order to exchange ideas on their research, and to discuss future developments in their disciplines.

The organizing and hosting of International Conferences and Symposiums, the carrying out of Research, and the production of Publications are the basic activities of ATINER.  Since 1995, ATINER has organized more than 400 International Conferences and other events, and has published close to 200 books. In 2012, the Association launched a series of conference paper publications (click here), and at the beginning of 2014, it introduced its own series of Journals (click here).

Academically, the Association is organized into seven Divisions and 37 Units.  Each Unit organizes at least an Annual International Conference, and may also undertake various small and large research projects.

Academics and Researchers are more than welcome to become members and to contribute to ATINER’s objectives. If you would like to become a member, please download the relevant form (membership form). For more information on how to become a member, please send an email to:
