Southern FARE Call for Papers(2011-12-01)
The fifth annual Southern Forum on Agricultural, Rural, and Environmental History is pleased to announce a call for papers for the April 13-14 meeting in Jackson, Mississippi, hosted by Millsaps College.
The Forum’s goal is to provide a welcoming and collegial environment for graduate students, junior faculty, 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. Dr. Stephen Brain, Assistant Professor of History at Mississippi State University and author of Song of the Forest: Russian Forestry and Stalinist Environmentalism, 1905-1953 (Pittsburgh, 2011), will deliver this year’s keynote address.
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. Please submit a 100-word paper proposal, or a 250-work session/roundtable proposal, and brief biographical sketch electronically to Drew Swanson at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 29, 2012.
