Recent Research Projects

  • Critical Demography Project -- Critical Demography is a new and exciting paradigm that has the potential of revolutionizing the study of population. Critical Demography
    facilitates the development of theories, methods and concepts that do not
    neatly fit within the boundaries of the prevailing paradigm, conventional
    demography. Critical Demography makes explicit the manner in which the
    social structure differentiates dominant and subordinate populations.
