About the workshop
The Agricultural History Society invites applications for a one-day graduate student workshop to be held Wednesday, June 7, 2017 in Grand Rapids, MI. The workshop will run immediately in advance of the AHS Annual Meeting (June 8-10, 2017), also in Grand Rapids. Applicants for the workshop are strongly encouraged to apply to present their work at the Annual Meeting as well.
The workshop will be oriented around the theme of "Farmers and Agriculture across Borders." We are particularly interested in scholarship that examines the intersection of agriculture and agriculturalists with the creation, maintenance, and erosion of geographical borders, whether national, regional, state, or beyond. Scholars who examine movement, exchanges, dialogues, and border-crossings are especially invited to apply, as are those who employ global, comparative, or transnational approaches. Research projects pertaining to any periods and geographic regions are eligible, and graduate students working in history or affiliated disciplines with substantial historical components are welcomed.
To apply, please submit a 200-word paper abstract and a one-page CV to Prof. Tore Olsson, at firstname.lastname@example.org, by December 1, 2016. Questions may be directed to the same email address.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply concurrently to the AHS Annual Meeting program to ensure access to the stipend.
