Submissions are invited for the 7th Annual Meeting of the Danish Society for Economic and Social History. It will take place this year from September 17-18, 2021 at Aarhus University. The theme is Agriculture and Economic History, but all topics are welcome, and are not restricted to work on Denmark or the Nordic region. The language of the meeting will be English, and it will start on September 17 after lunch, and will end on the afternoon of September 18. Presentations including questions will be scheduled to last roughly 30 minutes. There will be a tour of the Green Museum, Djursland (the museum of hunting, forests, agriculture and food, https://detgroennemuseum.dk/en/about-the-green-museum/) followed by dinner at the same location.
The Danish Society for Economic and Social History (https://sites.google.com/site/danishsocietyesh/) aims to promote the study of economic and social history in Denmark, as well as scholars in Denmark and abroad working on Danish economic and social history. We are hoping for a broad, interdisciplinary participation, covering issues including agricultural development, education and extension services, disease, financial issues, politics, animal welfare, the impact on the environment, food processing, trade, social issues, and in general all topics concerning rural life.
There will be a registration fee of €100 for this meeting, or €80 for members of the Danish Society for Economic and Social History (€60 for graduate students who are also members of the Society). You can join at our website (https://sites.google.com/site/danishsocietyesh/become-a-member). The membership fee is 150 DKK (ca. €20). The fee includes refreshments during the day, dinner, and transport to/from and a tour of the Green Museum, and will of course not be required in the event of virtual participation.
Prospective speakers should submit a one-page abstract to Xanthi Tsoukli (xanthi[at]sam.sdu.dk) including a statement about whether or not online participation would be acceptable to you by June 15, 2021. Notification of acceptance will be given by June 30, 2021.
