Informal Call for Papers:
BAHS Winter Conference
Neighbourliness in farming and rural society

As we have said before, we envisage that there will be a Winter Conference on Saturday 5 December although its exact format remains undecided. It is almost certain that it will be held by Zoom: a physical meeting would be a bonus but is very unlikely to happen.

The subject will be Neighbourliness in farming and rural society. We have a number of papers offered but would welcome more. This then is an informal call for short presentations, no more than 20 or 25 minutes each with a bit of time allowed for discussion and questions. Suitable subjects might include

  • acts of solidarity as neighbourliness
  • the sharing of agricultural tasks, equipment and animals
  • gendered neighbourliness
  • the locations of neighbourliness
  • neighbourly support at times of illness and crisis
  • deviations from the ideal of neighbourliness 

We would especially welcome proposals from colleagues based in Scotland and Ireland who might not normally be able to take part in our meeting, and from those interested in neighbourliness in European rural societies. Time span from the middle ages to c. 2000. Please use the contact form to submit your proposal, with a title and short abstract (under Subject, choose Conferences (BAHS, Spring and Winter).
