Call for Papers:
Quantitative Approaches to Rural, Agricultural and Environmental History

The Fourth AGRICLIOMETRICS Conference is to be held in Madrid on 25th and 26th of June, 2020. It will be organized in Figuerola Institue of History and Social Sciences, Universidad Carlos III of Madrid, with the assistance of colleagues from the University of Zaragoza, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Norwegian University of Science and Technology 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 November 30th, 2019 to: Decisions regarding acceptance will be sent out no later than January 30th, 2020.
