The Rural History Roundtable is a speaker series that has been in operation since 2002. It hosts scholars of international repute and provides a venue for graduate students to present their latest research. It is vertically intergrated drawing into its fold undergraduates, graduates, post-docs, faculty, archivists, alumni, and other members of the public. 

The final presentation of the Fall 2022 Speaker Series will begin on 16 November. To register for Mary Murphy's talk, "The 18-Hour Huckleberry Mousse: Creative Cooking in Rural North America," please click on the link below. Once registered, you will receive a ticket via email. You do not need to click 'sign into the event' or create an Eventbrite account. Instead, closer to the talk date you will receive an email containing the details of the Zoom meeting and a Zoom link. We encourage you to register no later than 30 minutes before the presentation.

The last three speakers of the Winter 2020 Roundtable were cancelled due to Covid-19
