Amish Studies Mini-Conference
Announcements

With a population doubling time of 21 years, the Amish are one of rural Americas’ fastest growing, most viable ethno-religious groups. From their plain clothes to their horse-and-buggy transportation and even to the more subtle ways they think and behave, the Amish remain highly distinct from the American mainstream, making them a fascinating site of inquiry for rural sociologists. The co-editors of Ohio State University’s Journal of Amish and Plain Anabaptist Studies invite conference attendees to participate in Amish-focused events spanning two days. On Thursday, a day-long field trip to Holmes County, OH, will open the mini-conference, and on Friday, four back-to-back paper sessions will offer ground-breaking research. Please join us!
