Demography, literally the study of people, addresses the size, distribution, composition, and density of populations. Professor of Gerontology at Oxford University, Director of the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing and director of the Clore Programme on Population-Environment Change Sarah Harper considers the way in which the global population has evolved over time and space, discusses the theories and methods involved in studying population trends and movements, and addresses some of the future population challenges of the 21st century.

Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series. These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre. No ticket is required.
