Transatlantic rural meeting hosted

The Centre for Welsh Politics and Society / WISERD@Aberystwyth hosted the annual meeting of the TransAtlantic Rural Research Network (TARRN) at the end of May, bringing together leading rural social scientists from the UK and United States.
Over 40 participants joined the meeting in Aberystwyth, representing TARRN’s core members of the leading rural social science research institutions at Aberystwyth University, Cornell University, the James Hutton Institute, Newcastle University, Penn State University and Queens University, Belfast, as well as invited participants from other universities in Britain, the United States and the Netherlands.
In addition to discussing research papers, including several by members of CWPS-WISERD, participants were introduced to CWPS-WISERD and other AU Interdisciplinary Research Centres over lunch, and visited the university’s Upland Research Platform at Pwllpeirian and the Nant-yr-Arian Forest Centre on a fieldtrip.
