Rural History 2013
The main aim of the conference is to provide an overview of the state of the art of rural history today. Rural History 2013 will be an occasion for rural historians to discuss the basic question of what exactly rural history is, how it can be narrated and, crucial for the future development of rural history, how the attractions of rural history in an era of worldwide urbanization can be communicated to the younger generation. The conference is open to historians as well as to scholars who approach rural history from a variety of other disciplines, such as archaeology, anthropology, rural economy, geography, sociology, political science, landscape studies and cultural approaches to the study of the countryside. While the conference will focus on rural history in Europe, it will also welcome contributions dealing with aspects of rural history in Africa, Asia and America. Rural History 2013 aims to provide a platform to discuss the meaning of rurality among scholars from different continents as well as disciplines.
