Day Conference 'Farming and the nation" (London, November 3, 2017)

Please note this message is published for your information and is not an IASC-actitvity

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Corn Production Act, and 70 years since the passing of the 1947 Agriculture Act. These anniversaries show that agricultural policy exists in an historical context, and agricultural historians should be part of the current debate on the future of farming. Accordingly, a one-day conference under the aegis of the British Agricultural History Society, 'Farming and the nation: historical perspectives for rural policy after Brexit', will take place at the Farmers Club in London on Friday 3 November.

Speakers will be:
Dr Paul Brassley (University of Exeter):
Professor David Harvey (University of Newcastle):
Dr Nicola Verdon (Sheffield Hallam University):
Dr Alan Greer (University of the West of England, Bristol):

And, in a concluding round-table discussion chaired by Dr Jeremy Burchardt (University of Reading): Charlie Pye-Smith (author of Land of Plenty), Johann Tasker (chief reporter, Farmers Weekly), Professor Abigail Woods (King’s College, London, veterinary historian), and Berkeley Hill (Imperial College, London, expert on agricultural economics and policy).
