Welcome to H-Rural, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. The primary purpose of H-Rural is to facilitate discussions about scholarship and teaching in rural and agricultural history. We welcome contributions such as conference announcements, calls for papers, course syllabi, conference reports, news of new datasets, and other items related to our focus, rural and agricultural history over time and place.
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) research fellowship program is committed to providing funding for scholars whose research requires the use of KHS’s rich collections. The program supports senior and emerging scholars, including doctoral students, through one-to-four week fellowships ($400 for each week of fellowship residency).
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is home to one of the finest weaving archives in the nation—the Churchill Weavers collection. Comprised of more than 30,000 handwoven textiles and related weaving and business records, this collection promises to enrich many areas of scholarship and exhibition research, especially those related to labor history, the history of 20th century capitalism, material culture, and the history of Appalachia.
The journal Agricultural History is seeking two book review editors to assume the position in January 2017. One editor would work with books from US-based presses, and one would handle non-US presses. Potential editors will have a terminal degree in her/his field and considerable experience in the area of agricultural and rural history.
