Seeking Panelists, Agricultural Borderlands — Ag History Banff 2013

From H-West:

Hi All,

I am looking to put together a *Borderlands Agriculture and Economy* panel for next year’s Agricultural History Society annual meeting in Banff.  I am interested in papers from any period of time and any place in the world, but which focus specifically on agriculture and economy in a borderland space.  I define such a space as one which possesses an unclear or contested national or cultural identity between other empires or states, and in which imperial or state power is weak or non-existent. Borderlands often have a border running through them.  They often exhibit dynamics of identity-formation, social conflict, and border-crossing and invasion.

The website for the AHS and its meeting: http://www.aghistorysociety.org/

The deadline has been extended to October 15, 2012.

Drop me a line if you are interested!
