On September 24, Bill Frey, a senior fellow at Brookings and research professor at Michigan’s Population Studies Center, was the keynote speaker at a special Demography Seminar (DemSem). Frey is an internationally-known demographer who conducts research on urban populations, migration, immigration, race, aging, and political demographics. At the event, co-sponsored by the La Follette School of Public Affairs and the Institute for Research on Poverty, Frey spoke about how new racial demographics are changing aspects of American life, the topic of his book Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America (second edition, 2018). Comments were provided by Linn Posey-Maddox (educational policy studies) and CDE affiliate Katherine Curtis (community and environmental sociology).
DemSem continues each week of the fall semester with presentations by Philipp Koellinger, Lauren Brown, Colter Mitchell, Fabian Pfeffer, Christopher Seplaki, David Rehkopf, and many others. Join us on Tuesdays at 12:15 for more cutting-edge research in population science.
