Registration is now open for the Agricultural History Society's first conference in Europe. The deadline to register is May 31, 2022. Complete registration information and a draft of the conference program are available at the conference web page:

The regular conference sessions will take place from Thursday, August 4th, to Saturday, August 6th on the campus of the University of Stavanger. Lunch will be provided for conference participants on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Saturday evening will feature a boat tour to the world-renowned garden of Flor og Fjære, located on a small island, where we will have the conference dinner after a guided tour of the gardens. Optional day-long tours are also being offered on Wednesday, August 3rd and Sunday, August 7th. Further details are available at the conference web page link above.

This year's conference theme is "Greening the Field(s)," as we aim to explore production and impacts from farm to fork, recognizing the emergence of synergies in the content and practices of environmental history and agricultural history, especially when assessing ethical and popular responses to production and products, policy debates on the potential of green transitions in future farming, and the societal impacts of changing land uses. The theme also captures questions linked to sustainable food production in periods of environmental and climate change and crisis, as well as attempts to create and live new agricultures.

Questions can be directed to

The Agricultural History Society was founded in Washington, D.C. in 1919 "to promote the interest, study and research in the history of agriculture." It began publishing its journal, Agricultural History, in 1927.
