The EURHO Conferences are international, multidisciplinary meetings intended for all European and other researchers applying comparative approaches. They aim to promote a dialogue between rural history researchers which aims to surpass national frontiers, cross chronological barriers and break down disciplinary boundaries. They welcome all and any topics, that bring new insights to the historical study of the problems faced by rural society. These range from the economic and social history of the countryside (agricultural or preindustrial production, social reproduction, consumption, material culture, village life, technology, tourism and so on) to connections with environmental, political, anthropological and cultural history — and beyond these, with the preoccupations of geography, sociology, economy, archeology, agronomy, biology and zoology. They deal with subjects such as supply, power relations, gender, social well-being, and technological and scientific improvements in the historical framework of agriculture and of rural society and the relationship between city and countryside.

The success of the EURHO conferences – the inaugural meeting in Brighton (2010) and the conferences in Berne (2013), Girona (2015) and Leuven (2017) – have proved EURHO ‘s usefulness as a means to effectively promote the history of the countryside. The Paris Conference will be open to all proposals employing new methods or yielding new results across a wide range of themes, time periods and spatial boundaries.
