International Colloquium 'Latin American Agrarian History, 1800 to the present: Issues, debates and research perspectives'

6-7 December 2018, Centro de Historia Económica, Facultad de Administración y Economía (FAE), Universidad de Santiago de Chile 

 

Due to growing interdisciplinary research, the history of agriculture and rural society is being studied from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives. Some of these  were established decades ago, while others are still emerging. The aim of this colloquium is to promote dialogue between these different ways of doing history and reflect on the key issues, debates and research perspectives across Latin American agrarian history, at both regional and individual country levels. We invite researchers to present papers on the political, economic, cultural, social or environmental history of rural Latin American societies. Papers should be based on original research and make theoretical, methodological or empirical contributions that advance research in agrarian history. We are also interested in research that examines relevant contemporary issues, such as food security, the environmental impact of economic growth, responses to environmental change, struggles over water resources, among others. As such, we welcome submissions from anthropologists, economists and other social scientists whose work on rural society has a historical focus.

Please send a 300-word abstract in Spanish, English or Portuguese via e-mail to Claudio Robles: claudio.robles@usach.cl or Anna Cant: annacant@googlemail.com    The abstract should set out the research problem or question, theoretical/methodological approach, central argument and contribution of the work. In addition, please send a one-page CV that includesyour full name, academic affiliation, e-mail address, research interests or expertise, and a list of recent publications.
