The Rural History 2023 conference continues the tradition of the previous Rural History conferences held in Bern, Girona, Leuven, Paris, Uppsala aiming to promote a scientific discussion on new research on rural history in a broad sense by bringing together researchers dealing with different regions, different periods and from different theoretical and methodological traditions.
In accordance with this, the conference is open for research on all aspects on the history of the countryside in Europe and its interaction with other parts of the world throughout time. We welcome participation from different academic subjects dealing with history, archaeology, geography, economic history, economics, sociology, ethnology, anthropology, development studies, gender studies, environmental history, historical demography, science and technology history, colonial history, global history, etc.) presenting and discussing new research and thereby contributing to expanding our knowledge on the rural history of Europe and beyond. Our conference is also a great opportunity to bring into discussion contemporary concerns regarding rurality, and to highlight ways we could contribute to the safeguarding of living heritage
The Economic History Society offers 12 part-funded places on an intensive residential course designed to raise the quality and analytical rigour of doctoral dissertations in economic and social history; to improve the communication skills of postgraduates; to widen their approach to their subjects; and to encourage them to form networks with established scholars and fellow students in their areas of expertise.
This international conference seeks to discuss possible paths for the future of global history. How can the field live up to its emancipatory potential, how can its approaches and methods be pluralized, how do we address the more pressing topics of global inequality and poverty, how do we strive for a consequent decolonization, and how can a decentralized and entangled practice of global history be achieved (Mignolo, 2007; Bhambra, 2014; Grosfoguel, 2007; Epple, 2018; Adichie, 2019)? With these questions at hand, we would like to center stage the perspectives and experiences of scholars from societies that are still at the margins of global history. We therefore invite scholars, artists, and writers whose histories and epistemologies have been sidelined or excluded from debates about our global past to chart the pivots of a new global history in the plural. The aim of this conference is to discuss and promote ways toward a more open and multicentered study of global history. However, the conference is not limited to the field’s research and writing practices, but also problematizes who its (current and future) practitioners and audiences are, addressing the stark imbalance of gender, race, and class within the discipline. While the workshop does not attempt to provide final answers for a remake of the field, it offers the opportunity to suggest, reflect, and sketch new avenues for a fairer global history that includes a broader and more diverse authorship and an expansion of its methodological, narrative, and conceptual repertoire.
The European Society for Environmental History (ESEH) welcomes submissions for the 2023 Tallinn Dissertation Prize in European Environmental History.

Après avoir consacré quelques numéros aux PME et quelques articles sur les artisans, la revue Entreprises & Histoire se propose à présent de préparer un numéro sur l’artisanat, ses entreprises et ses entrepreneurs, dont l’ambition sera de croiser et de faire se rencontrer différentes disciplines (histoire, économie, sciences de gestion, sociologie, anthropologie, droit…) pour éclairer les capacités d’adaptation des entreprises artisanales face aux transformations économiques et le dynamisme de l’artisanat sur la longue durée, mais également pour étudier l’évolution du regard des chercheurs sur l’artisanat, comme un monde en voie de disparition à protéger ou au contraire comme une nouvelle forme de modernité.
The purpose of the workshop is to bring together people teaching and researching historical population studies in a wide range of disciplines to 1) identify the differences in the way each discipline approaches the teaching of and research in historical demography and 2) begin to build a consensus on the key concepts, methods and approaches that students of historical demography should be taught regardless of discipline. We wish to encourage those attending to discuss the way that their disciplines teach topics and approaches in historical demography; describe the research training and skills that they—or their discipline—believe students of historical demography need to acquire; and consider the benefits and challenges they have encountered when collaborating with colleagues trained in other disciplines.
