Massachusetts Institute of Technology
15-17 June 2006
Deadline for Submissions: 15 October 2005
The Agricultural History Society is pleased to announce its return to annual meetings, beginning in the summer of 2006.
The program committee for the 2006 meeting of the Agricultural History Society invites submissions from scholars at all levels and in all disciplines on topics related to the conference theme of Agrarian Societies. We seek proposals for panels and papers that speak to the many ways that agriculture has shaped landscapes, economies, communities, and states throughout the world. Historians and scholars in related fields are encouraged to submit proposals for all types of presentation formats, and interdisciplinary collaborations are particularly encouraged.
The committee welcomes submissions treating agriculture both within and beyond the borders of the United States, particularly the formation of panels that might focus on the following themes:
• The Politics of Food Production
• States and Farmers: Boon or Bane?
• The Power and Meaning of Place: rural, urban, and suburban spaces
• Agriculture and Rural Industrialization
• Gender, Production, and Consumption in Rural America
• Animals and Agriculture
Proposals should be submitted electronically in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Complete session proposals should include and identify a chair, participants, and, if applicable, a commentator. All proposals must include the following information:
• An abstract of no more than 200 words for the session as a whole;
• A prospectus of no more than 250 words for each presentation;
• A mailing address, email, phone number, and affiliation for each participant; and
• A CV of no more than one page for each participant.
