My name is Tim Riswick, a PhD Candidate at the Radboud Group for Historical Demography and Family History, Department of History, Radboud University Nijmegen. In addition, I am a lecturer in economic and social history, University of Groningen.
My research interests include life transitions (mortality, fertility, migration, marriage, social status), family history, inequality in life chances, evolutionary theories, big history, and comparative research on Asia and Western Europe in general. I am also interested in the role of historians in our society and the public debate. Moreover, I always like to try to promote and encourage young professionals, which is also the main reason for chairing the Association for Young Historical Demographers.
On this website you can find my academic work, my voluntary work in Museum de Kantfabriek and all other ideas and subjects I would like to share with the world.
