Sincethe AHS has served as the leading scholarly organization in the world dedicated to the study of rural life and agriculture, with our journal Agricultural History serving the scholarly community since AHS members research and teach the history of agriculture and rural life from multiple perspectives across time periods and geography.
Giesen and Treasurer Alan I Marcus. AHS members and officers now look forward to welcoming new leadership. Proposals need not reflect the pattern of two officers at the same institution and may combine the two roles. Professors Giesen and Marcus will provide counsel during the transition.
The principal duties of the Executive Secretary include: The principal duties of the Treasurer include: The successful proposal will include the following: The society is open to many configurations for these positions. Lowitt was elected a member of the executive committee from and served as president from The journal will publish a recognition of his life and service in the fall issue.
His obituary may be found here. As a preparation, we are happy to issue now this informal call for papers. We would like to shape the session around three topics: All across the world, diets have been changing rapidly and profoundly in the period from to the present.
In the global South, some traits of a nutrition transition can be detected, but such transition seems to be unfolding in ways that do not necessarily mimic those of the global North at an earlier stage.
One major area of interest for us is the measurement, description and identification of these major trends. Changes in food consumption seem to be partly related to economic factors, such as the evolution of consumer income and food prices.
These in turn connect the analysis of diet change to broader issues of economic growth, inequality and food chain dynamics. Yet, few would dispute that these economic variables exert their impact within specific political, social and cultural contexts patriotic campaigns, social movements, religious norms, etc.
We particularly welcome analyses of the causes of diet change that aim at capturing this interplay of economic, political, social and cultural elements. The most immediate impact of diet change has to do with consumer health.
There is now widespread concern about the negative consequences of excessive, unhealthy food consumption styles in the global North, as well as an increasing awareness of the role of food security in human development in the global South.
Yet, there are other, indirect consequences of diet change, such as those that impact on the environment or on social cohesion. In the long run, the nutrition transition probably contributes to the making of a middle-class, mass consumer society, but the more recent turn towards differentiated foods and qualitative substitutions may well have started a new cycle of class-based differentiation.
We welcome paper proposals on these three areas, broadly defined.
Interdisciplinary, cross-country analyses will be very well received, but we are also interested in papers that provide in-depth accounts of particular products and countries. Papers that are explicitly framed within theoretical perspectives from the social sciences are encouraged, but other papers will be considered as well.
If you want to join us for this session, please send us a title and a short abstract of about words to our email addresses: The deadline for this is September Please realize that, in case that our session proposal is accepted, preference will be given to those of you who join us at this early stage.
Presenters in this webinar share their successes in linking site-specific and culturally distinct stories to the big topic of agriculture.
Webinar attendees can use these questions to launch their own agriculture interpretation. Please contact info aaslh. Learn about examples of interpreting agriculture that work. Receive a framework of questions which they can use to launch their own place-based and mission-driven agriculture interpretation.
Begin to explore humanities-based strategies to convey a multi-disciplinary topic agriculture and farming. Better ensure that gender, race, ethnicity, power and authority remain central to all projects, and that rural-urban dichotomies and farming in the city and the country receive attention.
This webinar is suitable for all staff and volunteers in institutions with interest in interpreting agriculture. Doctoral students working in any related discipline are invited to apply.
Each accepted applicant will meet with a committee of scholars who will provide feedback at the May 17 workshop. Applicants must submit a page word prospectus and a CV as a single Word file.The written history of Poland began in the 10th century. At that time Poland was ruled by a dynasty called the Piasts.
