This Special Issue comprises selected papers from the 2nd International Conference on “Transitions in Agriculture and Rural Society. The Global Challenges of Rural History”.
Rural History is going beyond the mostly national or state analytical framework that characterised it, as well as the perspectives and interpretations too focused on Europe and the Western World. After the success of the First International Conference (Lisbon, 2016), the SEHA and RuralRePort retake the global challenges in rural history research by jointly organizing a new conference in Santiago de Compostela (Galiza), which will take place 20-23 June, 2018.
For this Second Conference, Transitions in Agriculture and Rural Society has been chosen as the key subject. On this axis, we try to provide continuity to the approach of a transnational and transcontinental rural history, as well as to make a contribution to the challenge of creating a global space of debate on rural history. We aim at articulating an open space, which by overcoming disciplinary, chronological and spatial borders, succeeds in housing the new challenges and answers, being defined in recent times from the point of view of rural history.
