Welcome to the Rural History conference, June 20-23, 2022!

The fifth biennial conference of the European Rural History Organisation (EURHO), Rural History 2021 in Uppsala, has been very successful in attracting scholars. More than 450 papers will be presented at 82 panels. Many of the panels consist of double sessions leading to a packed program of 120 sessions during four days.

The early-bird registration is open from February 15 and all information on conference fees and social events can be found on the registration page. Information on keynotes and suggestions for hotels can also be found on this web-site. We urge you to register as soon as possible to attain early-bird fees!

The EURHO conferences are the world’s largest gatherings of researchers interested in rural history and previous conferences in Bern (2013), Girona (2015), Leuven (2017), and Paris (2019) have shown their success in promoting and discussing new research on the broad field of rural history in Europe.

Rural History 2021 aims to continue in this line and will thus take place in Uppsala, Sweden, from Monday June 20 to Thursday June 23, 2022. The conference will be jointly organized by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Uppsala University through the Division of Agrarian History and the Department of Economic History respectively.

We are very sorry for all inconveniences the decision on postponing the conference might have caused but we hope that together we will make Rural History 2021 a fantastic event also in 2022.
