Dear Colleagues,

This Sustainability special issue comprises selected papers from the Second International Conference on Transitions in Agriculture and Rural Society. The Global Challenges of Rural History

Rural History is going beyond the mostly national or state analytical framework which characterized it, as well as the perspectives and interpretations too focused on Europe and the Western World. After the success of the First International Conference (Lisbon 2016), the SEHA and RuralRePort retake the global challenges in Rural History research by jointly organizing a new conference in Santiago de Compostela (Galiza), which will take place between the 20th and the 23rd of June 2018.

For this Second Conference Transitions in Agriculture and Rural Society has been chosen as the key subject. On this axis we try to give continuity to the approach of a transnational and transcontinental Rural History, as well as making a contribution to the challenge of creating a global space of debate on Rural History. We aim at articulating an open space which by overcoming disciplinary, chronological and spatial borders succeeds in housing the new challenges and answers being defined in recent times from the point of view of Rural History.

Lourenzo Fernandez Prieto, Guest Editor
