Southern Forum on Agricultural, Rural,
and Environmental History 2018 (SFARE)
The Southern Forum on Agricultural, Rural, and Environmental History (SFARE) is now accepting proposals for its annual conference, to be held at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee, April 27-28, 2018.
I’m currently writing a thesis on the Swedish agricultural policy program after the Second World War. Special focus is given to the interaction between state and farmer and how this interaction could affect the development of agricultural policies. For Sweden I have source materials where the farmer and the state interacts in questions about land reform and also materials that cover the farmers' voices in the process of reshaping the Swedish countryside.

I'm looking for information on twentieth-century land reform and land redistribution programs in both Europe and the United States. I know the French case and am trying to figure out how it compares. The two primary programs in France worked as follows: a community could request assistance from the state (by way of a surveyor and financial aid) to redraw their its cadastral map; a land bank monitored sales in agricultural lands and bought up parcels and resold them (with discounted transaction costs) in order to create larger, more "rational" farms.
