Faculty and graduate students only. This Friday's paper is by James Wall, a doctoral candidate in history: “The Man Who Owns the Land Owns You”: New Communities, Incorporated and the End of the Rural War on Poverty."
To provide a space for the further development of interdisciplinary, historically-grounded scholarship around issues of agriculture, environment, and capitalism, the organizers of “Dirty History” invite both faculty and advanced graduate students to attend our monthly workshop. Papers (25-35 pages) will be circulated two weeks prior to the meeting, and all attendees should read in advance. To get copies of papers or to volunteer to present write to Cindy Hahamovitch. We workshop dissertation chapters, book chapters, and article drafts.
