British Agricultural History Society Workshop

This workshop is an opportunity for postgraduate research students and early career historians to share and discuss their work in a supportive environment with their peers, academics in the field and other interested parties. It is organised by the British Agricultural History Society. Representatives from the BAHS will talk about the work of the society, and advice on publishing, impact and public engagement will be discussed.

Contributions are welcome from those researching any aspect of rural and agricultural history, broadly defined to include economy, society, and culture, landscape studies, environmental history, and local and regional history, and from the medieval, early modern and modern periods. We particularly invite innovative ideas and approaches.

The workshop offers 2 different ways to present your research:– 15 minute presentation – these provide an opportunity to present a paper on a defined aspect of your research. Please provide a 500 word summary of your proposed paper.

– 5 minute Quick Fire Presentations – these will provide the opportunity for participants to present their research in a nutshell, and generate discussion focal points throughout the day. These are ideal for people embarking upon a PhD or in the early stages of a research project. Please provide a 250 word summary of your research, including the focus for your 5 minute presentation.
