AGRICLIOMETRICS III
Quantitative Approaches to Rural, Agricultural and Environmental History

The third AGRICLIOMETRICS conference is to be held in Cambridge on 3-4 April, 2017. It will be organized in Magdalene College, University of Cambridge, with the assistance of colleagues from the University of Zaragoza, Lund University and the University of Pisa.

This conference aims to offer scholars working on quantitative rural, agricultural and natural resources history (and related issues) an opportunity to discuss their work in progress. We welcome papers on topics related to the use of quantitative techniques for the understanding of relevant problems in rural, agricultural and environmental history. Given the benefits arising from a cross-disciplinary dialogue, papers coming from different disciplines are particularly encouraged, especially from demographers, economists, sociologists, political scientists and historians. Papers by young scholars are especially welcome.

Anyone wishing to present a paper should send a 500 word abstract by no later than October 15th, 2016 to: fjb38@cam.ac.uk. Decisions regarding acceptance will be sent out no later than November 30th, 2016. Final versions of the accepted papers are expected by no later than March 1st, 2017. They will be circulated to all participants prior to the meeting and published on the workshop website.

The organizers offer a number of grants to cover accommodation and meals costs for graduate students invited to present a paper.

The organizing committee: Francisco Beltrán Tapia (University of Cambridge), Giovanni Federico (University of Pisa), Vicente Pinilla (University of Zaragoza) and Patrick Svensson (Lund University). All correspondence should be addressed to fjb38@cam.ac.uk
