Theme: Tropicana: Commodities across Borders
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Agricultural History Society welcomes proposals for sessions and papers on the conference theme Tropicana: Commodities across Borders. The theme locates the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America in a global history of commodity production and consumption. South Florida’s diverse agricultural systems, its history of immigrant labor, and its industrial processing of fruits, vegetables, and tobacco, make St. Petersburg an ideal location to explore important stories in agricultural history. The committee encourages proposals that engage the conference theme, although topics from any geographical location and time period are welcome. Please join us in St. Petersburg.
Information on submission:
1. Session proposals should include a two-hundred-word abstract for each paper and a one-page CV for each panel member in MS Word.
2. Individual paper proposals should consist of a two-hundred-word abstract and a one-page CV in MS Word.
3. All proposals should be submitted electronically in MS Word format.
Deadline for submissions is November 15, 2017
