Since the 1984-85 academic year, the weekly Demography Workshop has played a unique and central role in integrating advanced graduate students into the intellectual life of the demography program of the Committee on Demographic Training (CDT), training graduate students in demographic studies, preparing them for the public presentations of their work which they will face at professional meetings and colloquia, and exposing them to the interdisciplinary intellectual exchange that is central to the practice of contemporary American demography. No other teaching activity at the University of Chicago provides students with intense, regular exposure to interdisciplinary debate about contemporary demographic research.

This workshop series has been named in honor of Donald Bogue. One cannot capture the influence of his career in these pages, but as someone who did groundbreaking work in both demography and urban sociology, and founded the journal Demography in 1964, we thought it fitting to remind each presenter and audience member of his impact on the field. We also note that Professor Bogue was a regular participant in the workshop until his 95th birthday; his collegiality and commitment to our program was evident.
