The third Southern Forum on Agricultural, Rural, and Environmental History will be held at the University of South Carolina, Columbia on April 9-10, 2010. Sponsored by The Institute for Southern Studies, the Forumís 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 this event to be a place for scholars to try out innovative ideas in an informal, supportive, and constructive setting. Toward that end, we ask that participants plan on attending all sessions to generate quality discussion for all presenters (the sessions will be non-concurrent). Work on all geographic locations and time periods is welcome.
Faculty and graduate students are invited to submit session, roundtable, or single-paper proposals on any topic dealing with rural, agricultural, or environmental history.
Please submit a 100-word paper proposal, or a 250-word session proposal, and brief biographical sketch or CV electronically to Bert Way at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 12, 2010.
