Agricultural History Society CFP Deadline Extension

*Submission deadline extended*

The 2016 annual meeting of the Agricultural History Society will explore the always mutually dependent, sometimes amicable and often tendentious relationship between urban and rural spaces through the conference theme “Town and Country”; and what better place to do so than in New York City?

Re: Please Help Support H-Net: Our Fall Appeal is Underway

Thank you Lorna and Bronwen for your thoughtful responses. Lorna, thank you for your service as editor.

Lorna, I appreciate your request that I consider getting more involved. Just now I must decline. I am an independent scholar without institutional support. For tedious reasons my internet access is not good. In addition to Bronwen's remarks with which I wholly concur, my technical access problems make me prefer email to web format.
