The Agricultural History Society seeks emerging scholars to participate in a lightning panel -- Agricultural History: Emerging Scholars Share Tips -- during the 2020 OAH conference.  Information on the topic follows. Presentations limited to 5 minutes with Q&A to follow.

Hot topics such as bioproducts, food security, renewable energy, race relations, racism, class conflict, rural-urban exchange, and environmental history all can be better understood by considering context that agricultural history (and farm life) provide. The Agricultural History Society invites emerging scholars to share an example of how agricultural history informs their work.

Deadline: Immediate. 

To Volunteer: Contact panel co-chair Debra Reid; provide a title and brief summary of your contribution.
