The Agricultural History Society, National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), University of Nevada at Reno (UNR) College of Agriculture, and UNR Department of History will sponsor a conference on Water and Rural History in Reno, 31 May - 2 June 2001. The event will be held in the new conference facilities of the University Inn on the UNR campus.
Papers are invited on a wide variety of water and rural history topics. They may include, but are not limited to, rural water supplies and uses, such as water quality, irrigation, sanitation, social and economic aspects of rural water consumption supply, snow surveying, water supply forecasting, and historical aspects of hydrology.
Organizers are planning a Saturday field trip to rural sites of water origin and use. The trip may take participants to a local irrigation project or into the Sierra valley to view the streams that feed and drain Lake Tahoe.
Submissions for sessions and papers should include a 500-word description of the scope and the theme of the proposed session or individual paper. Topics should be submitted by 1 July 2000 to Professor William D. Rowley, History Department (308), University of Nevada, Reno NV 89557 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Following the conference participants may submit papers to the editor of Agricultural History to be considered for inclusion in the symposium issue of the journal.
