Rural History 2015 Conference

Rural History 2015 is the second conference held under the auspices of the European Rural History Organisation (EURHO). It is organised by the Spanish Agricultural History Society (SEHA) and the Rural History Research Centre of the University of Girona (CRHR) and it will take place at the University of Girona, Spain from 7-10 September 2015. The conference is open to historians studying all periods as well as to scholars who approach rural history from a variety of other disciplines. While it focuses on the rural history of Europe it also welcomes contributions dealing with aspects of rural history in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australasia.

The conference is structured around panel sessions on a specific topic. 71 panels were selected after the call for panels announced in May 2014. We invite historians and related scholars to submit proposals for papers (up to 1,000 words). The deadline for submission is January 31, 2015. Corresponding authors will be informed of the outcome of the review and selection process by February 28, 2015. In case your paper does not fit the topics currently available on the list of panels, there is an open subject panel (panel No. 72) to submit your paper. It is also envisaged a panel (Panel No. 73) for graduate students (master or doctoral) who wish to present their research in progress.
