The inaugural Forum on Agricultural and Rural History at Mississippi State (FARhMS) will be held April 4-5, 2008 on the University’s Starkville campus. The Forum’s goal is to provide a welcoming and collegial environment for graduate students and established scholars to present new material that pushes the boundaries of agricultural, rural, and environmental history. The organizers intend for this event to be a place for scholars to try out innovative ideas in an informal, supportive, and constructive setting. Work on all geographic locations and time periods is welcome.
Faculty and graduate students are invited to submit session, roundtable, or single-paper paper proposals on any topic dealing with rural, agricultural, or environmental history. Graduate students whose papers are accepted for presentation will receive one night’s free lodging on campus.
Please submit a 100-word paper proposal, or a 250-word session/roundtable proposal, and brief biographical sketch to Jim Giesen at JGiesen@history.msstate.edu by February 1, 2008. For more information, visit:
