Berkeley Demography Brown Bag Talks


Demography Brown Bag seminars are held in the Fall and Spring semesters. For at least the Fall 2020 semester, brownbags will be on Zoom. Normally, they take place in the Demography Department seminar room at 2232 Piedmont Avenue, on (most) Wednesdays from 12:10 to 1:00, although the discussion often continues for a few minutes past 1:00. Please try to arrive before 12:10 so that we can start promptly at the scheduled time. Papers are occasionally available in advance. Regular and decaffeinated coffee, hot water for tea, and cookies are provided for refreshment.

Administrative inquiries, including requests to be added to the department's "Brown Bag Announcements List",  may be addressed to the Demography Office at (510) 642-9800, or to dmurphy(at)  If you would like to ask about presenting a seminar yourself, or have suggestions for other potential speakers, please contact Josh Goldstein at josh(at)

Video recordings of past presentations can be viewed at the Population Sciences at Berkeley YouTube site, and on the home page of this website. Demography Brown Bag Talks receive support from the Berkeley Population Center, the Center on the Economics and Demography of Aging, and the Department of Demography.
