Historical metrology and Rural History before the metro

Leuven, 11-14 de September 2017

Submission Deadline: January 31st 2017

Since the publishing of "Measures and Men" by Witold Kula in 1970, the history of measures became, due to its own merits, a discipline in itself (historical metrology), changing forever its status as a mere auxiliary science. Therefore, this panel welcomes proposals that are connected, whether directly or indirectly, with the study of measurement before the Metric System, basically, from the perspectives of Social History, Economics and Land Surveying in rural areas.
