CFP: Agricultural History Society 2019

The 100th anniversary meeting of the Agricultural History Society will be held in Washington, D.C., on June 6-8, 2019; the theme will be “ Power in Agricultural History.” According to the call for papers,
Power, in its multiple guises—whether political, social, economic, or physical—is embedded in every aspect of agricultural production, food and fiber marketing and consumption, and rural society and culture. The organizing theme is meant to encourage historians who refuse to accept that the current and future conditions of farms, food systems, and rural society and culture are the result of autonomous logics.
Session proposals should include a two-hundred-word abstract for each paper and a one-page CV for each panel member; individual paper proposals should consist of a two-hundred-word abstract and a one-page CV. All proposals should be submitted electronically in MS Word format to the program committee by email at: aghist2019@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is September 28, 2018. For the full call for papers, please see the AHS website.
    Questions may be addressed to Shane Hamilton, the program committee chair, at shane.hamilton@york.ac.uk.
