The theme of the 2015 conference “The Local is Global”: Gender and Rural Connections across Time and Place emphasizes the importance of rural women’s local activities and experiences — both historical and contemporary — to global affairs. At the same time, it highlights the gendered impacts of and reactions to global processes — including globalization, international and transnational trends, policies and programs, and climate change — at the local level. It especially aspires to explore how these different scales are connected across time and space.
