SIXTH EUROPEAN SOCIAL SCIENCE HISTORY CONFERENCE (ESSHC)
AMSTERDAM, 22-25 MARCH 2006
RURAL HISTORY NETWORK
FIRST CIRCULAR. CALL FOR PAPERS
The ESSHC aims at bringing together scholars interested in explaining historical phenomena using the methods of the social sciences. The conference is characterized by a lively exchange in many small groups, rather than by formal plenary sessions. The conference welcomes papers and sessions on any topic and any historical period. It is organised in a large number of networks which cover a certain topic. The European Social Science History Conference is organised by the International Institute of Social History (IISH).
The Rural History Network has been gaining momentum during the last editions of the ESSHC. The sessions proposed for the conference taking place in Amsterdam in March 2006 are as follows:
Roundtable: Slicher van Bath’s The Agrarian History of Western Europe.
