BioHistory Seminar: "The fertility transition in the Basque Country during Franco's Regime (1940-1970)"

Presentation by Josu Hernando, PhD Fellow at Universidad del Pais Vasco (Basque Country, Spain) and visiting PhD Fellow at Copenhagen Centre for Health Research in the Humanities (CoRe), Saxo Institute.

Josu Hernando

Josu Hernando will discuss his doctoral research on “The fertility transition in the Basque Country during the Franco Regime, 1940-1970s” that he is carrying out at the Department of History of the Universidad del Pais Vasco (Basque Country, Spain).

He will present his preliminary results on the different experiences of fertility decline that can be found between the main cities, Donosti and Bilbao (with 100,000 and 190,000 inhabitants, respectively), smaller-size towns over 20.000 inhabitants as well as rural municipalities but also within these areas.

By using a mixture of sources and drawing heavily on individual level records collected from municipal quinquennial population counts, vital registration (births and infant deaths) as well as published information from censuses and other published sources, he will discuss the patterns and trends of the diversification of fertility behavior that took place in this period, 20-30 years after the first declines of fertility could be seen.

Josu Hernando is affiliated with Copenhagen Centre for Health Research in the Humanities (CoRe) at the Saxo Institute from September and three months onward.
