Population Ageing in Latin America shares academic activities and research of LARNA (Latin American Research Network on Ageing) at the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing, University of Oxford.
The Latin America Research Network on Ageing (LARNA) was created in 2008 under the directorship of Dr. George W. Leeson at the Institute, and co-ordinated by Dr. Alejandro Klein from the University of Guanajuato in Mexico.
LARNA held an inaugural conference in Oxford in 2009 with papers published in a special issue of the Institute’s Ageing Horizons (Issue Number 9, 2010).
After 12 years, LARNA now wants to develop further its multidisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research and teaching in Latin America, in line with the main researches programmes of the Oxford Institute of Population Ageing: understanding demographic change, demography and economy, demography and society, bio-demography and health, demography, science and innovation, and demography and the environment. To support this development, we have decided to relaunch the LARNA Newsletter as a new journal, Population Ageing in Latin America.
The journal has Dr George W. Leeson and Dr Alejandro L. Klein as Editors-in-Chief, and has a distinguished editorial board to support its work. The first issue will be published in October 2021, with two issues per year presenting original peer reviewed articles and book reviews. It will continue as the newsletter for LARNA members, so we encourages members to submit information about books, notices of seminars and conferences.
