*  *  *

Publié le vendredi 29 juin 2018 par Elsa Zotian

Résumé

The EURHO Conferences are international, multidisciplinary meetings intended for all European and other researchers applying comparative approaches. The Paris Conference will be open to all proposals employing new methods, introducing new approaches, exploring new concepts or yielding new results across a wide range of themes, time periods and spatial boundaries. We encourage all scholars and researchers to bring their knowledge and experience to this event. We particularly welcome panels and papers dealing with the economic, social, political or cultural history of the countryside (agricultural or artisanal production, social reproduction, consumption, material culture, power relations, gender, well-being, village life, political relations, technological and scientific improvements, tourism etc. ) and featuring  links to environmental, political, anthropological and cultural history — and, beyond these, an interest in the preoccupations of geography, sociology, economy, archeology, agronomy, biology and zoology.

Annonce

Presentation

It is with great pleasure that we announce the holding of Rural History 2019, the fourth biennial conference of the European Rural History Organisation (EURHO), in Paris from Tuesday 10 to Friday 13 September 2019. This meeting will be organised by the École des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), through the Centre de Recherches Historiques (CRH), in collaboration with the CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique), the FMSH (Fondation Maison des Sciences de l’Homme) and the EPHE (Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes). The EURHO Conferences aim to promote a dialogue between rural history researchers that transcends national frontiers, crosses chronological barriers and breaks down disciplinary boundaries.

Argument

The Eurho Conferences are international, multidisciplinary meetings intended for all European and other researchers applying comparative approaches. They aim to promote a dialogue between rural history researchers which aims to surpass national frontiers, cross chronological barriers and break down disciplinary boundaries. They welcome all and any topics, that bring new insights to the historical study of the problems faced by rural society. These range from the economic and social history of the countryside (agricultural or preindustrial production, social reproduction, consumption, material culture, village life, technology, tourism and so on) to connections with environmental, political, anthropological and cultural history — and beyond these, with the preoccupations of geography, sociology, economy, archeology, agronomy, biology and zoology. They deal with subjects such as supply, power relations, gender, social well-being, and technological and scientific improvements in the historical framework of agriculture and of rural society and the relationship between city and countryside.

Submission guidelines

The Paris Conference will be open to all proposals employing new methods, introducing new approaches, exploring new concepts or yielding new results across a wide range of themes, time periods and spatial boundaries. We encourage all scholars and researchers to bring their knowledge and experience to this event. We particularly welcome panels and papers dealing with the economic, social, political or cultural history of the countryside (agricultural or artisanal production, social reproduction, consumption, material culture, power relations, gender, well-being, village life, political relations, technological and scientific improvements, tourism etc. ) and featuring  links to environmental, political, anthropological and cultural history — and, beyond these, an interest in the preoccupations of geography, sociology, economy, archeology, agronomy, biology and zoology.

All researchers working on the history of the countryside are invited to submit panel proposals. A panel should focus on a specific topic and include participants from at least two countries. Panel proposals will be assessed by the Academic Research Committee (comité scientifique) which will accept or refuse them, or suggest modifications. Organisers will be advised of other paper proposals that may relate to their panels. Double sessions on a particular topic are possible, but triple sessions are not.

Each session will last two hours and include four papers. Sessions will be led by a chair and a discussant. The presentation of new research and of work in progress is particularly relevant. Participants may not propose more than two papers.

A session proposal should include a title, the full name and affiliation of the organiser or co-organiser, and a short abstract (up to 500 words) introducing the topic, its scope, themes and approach, and the names and affiliations of at least two of the proposed panel contributors; a draft  call for papers may also be included.

The deadline for panel proposals is 15 October 2018.

Only online submissions via this link will be received by the Academic Research Committee.
