The population and environment research community recently lost a wonderful leader, colleague and mentor when Daniel Hogan passed away in April. Professor Hogan was part of the Institute of Philosophy and Human Sciences (IFCH) at the University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. Distinguished in the field of demography, he served as Provost for Graduate Studies from 2002 to 2005. He was also a member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, former president of Brazilian Population Association (ABEP) and served as Professor and Founding Researcher of the Unicamp Population Studies Center (NEPO) and the Environmental Studies Center (NEPAM). Hogan was also an active member of the International Union for the Scientific Study of Population (IUSSP), the Population Geography commission of the International Geographical Union (IGU), and Population & Environment's editorial board.
In recognition of Dr. Hogan's many contributions to the field, the editorial board of Population & Environment has agreed to dedicate a special issue to his memory. The guest editors for this issue will be Roberto do Carmo (IFCH, NEPO, Unicamp), Eduardo Marandola (NEPO, Unicamp), and Alex de Sherbinin (CIESIN, Columbia University). The editors are soliciting original research papers by former students or colleagues of Dr. Hogan, those who were influenced by his work, or by Brazilian and Latin American colleagues more generally. Contributions, within the broad framework of population-environment studies, may address the spatial distribution of population, migration, urbanization, water use, deforestation, climate change, vulnerability and risk. The editors also welcome contributions by demographers outside these themes who were influenced by Dr. Hogan's work.
Submissions must be in English and adhere to the journal guidelines.
Submissions should be accompanied by a letter outlining the connection between the paper (or the author) and Dr. Hogan's work or legacy.
Submission deadline: November 30, 2010.
