The aim of the Rural History 2021 conference is to promote a scientific discussion on new research on rural history in a broad sense by bringing together researchers dealing with different regions, different time periods and from different theoretical and methodological traditions.
In accordance with this, the conference is open for research on all aspects on the history of the countryside in Europe and its interaction with other parts of the world throughout time. The organisers welcome participation from different academic subjects (e.g. history, archaeology, geography, economic history, economics, sociology, anthropology, development studies, gender studies, environmental history, historical demography) presenting and discussing new research and thereby contributing to expanding our knowledge on the rural history of Europe and beyond.
In order to ensure a broad participation and high scientific value each session should focus on a specific topic and include presenters from at least two different countries. The topic could be both related to a specific theme, to methods, or to theories and concepts.
Each session will last two hours and include four papers. Sessions will be led by a chair and a discussant. Double sessions on a particular topic are possible. Participants are asked to limit themselves to a maximum of two presentations at the conference. Read more and source … (Web)
