European Society of Historical Demography, Massimo Livi Bacci Award25-03-2019 15:12
Massimo Livi Bacci's long and outstanding scientific activity has addressed various aspects of Italian and world population, in terms of current development as well as historical perspectives. His work is characterized by frequent incursions into disciplinary fields different to his central demographic interests, in order to both better understand the issues addressed and, at the same time, offer extensive comparative analysis framed by the long run. Indeed, Massimo Livi Bacci has produced some large and intense "frescoes" on the history of population. The books he has published in recent decades include: The Population of Europe. A History (Blackwell, 1999); Conquest. The Destruction of Native Americans (Polity 2008); A Concise History of World Population (fourth edition: Blackwell, 2006); Eldorado in the Marshes. Gold, Slaves and Souls between the Andes and the Amazon (Polity, 2010); A Short History of Migration (Polity, 2012); Amazzonia. L’impero dell’acqua, 1500-1800 (2012); and Our Shrinking Planet (Polity, 2017).
For the first time the ESHD will honour one of its members by bestowing its Massimo Livi Bacci Award. The Massimo Livi Bacci Award has been established by the European Society of Historical Demography to recognize the life-time achievements of outstanding ESHD members. Contributions to the advancement of historical demography and distinguished service rendered to the ESHD will be considered in the judging of the award. The ESHD membership nominates candidates for this award and members of the ESHD designated by the Council will select the successful candidate by secret ballot after careful review of each candidate’s dossier and testimonials.
You can nominate candidates to firstname.lastname@example.org before the 1st of June 2019.
