The name of A.G. Vishnevsky is closely intertwined with demographic studies in our country. He became a classic during his lifetime, and when he left, he left us with a rich scientific heritage, which, like any classics, will never lose its value. His research in the field of demographic theory laid a solid foundation for modern Russian research in the field of population studies, his work in the field of mortality, fertility, migration, the consequences of demographic changes will for a long time remain guidelines for both famous scientists and young researchers, and his recommendations in the field of family and demographic policies will not soon lose their relevance. However, A.G. Vishnevsky made a great contribution not only to demography, but also to social history, population economics, geography, and Russian literature.At the first demographic readings, it is planned to discuss issues that have attracted the attention of A.G. Vishnevsky in the latest years. For this, the following sessions will work:
