The European Association of Urban Historians invites all scholars to reflect on the complex relationship between social inequality and the city. While traditionally social inequality is a preferential playing field for economic and social historians, the conference’s main goal is to tackle this vast theme from a multi-dimensional perspective. Social inequality is not only mirrored but also wrought in forces as different as spatial dynamics, gender, race and class relations, demographic structures, housing and sanitary conditions, labour markets, social security systems, literacy and education, crime, public transport, ecological concerns and so on. This interconnectedness is the very essence of urban social inequality, and more often than not it is also closely linked to historical path-dependencies. Hence, in order to adequately address the historical relationship between (in)equality and the city, a perspective is needed that includes the social, political, cultural, economic conditions thereof across urban societies.
The present session is part of a longer reflection on the organization of the international agricultural markets between the 19th and the 20th century. It intends to mark a step forward, relying on the debates of the two last editions of the Rural History Conference. We started looking at transnational networks of agrarianism (Leuven, 2017), then we examined the role of experts in the making of global markets (Paris, 2019). In 2021, we focus on the production of data as tools of knowledge and governance of the international agricultural markets in the period 1880-1950.
