Panel Proposal for Agricultural History Society Annual Meeting

While I have an individual paper proposal prepared to submit, I first wanted to find if there was any interest in putting together a panel on Music and Power in Agricultural History. The proposal I have put together has to do with Farm Aid and the power of celebrity to not only assist farmers and rural America but to open a dialogue about the struggles faced in rural areas, small towns, and farms within popular music, especially country, and it's various sub-genres. If interested, please reply or email me at wholly [at] asu.edu

Reminder: CFP 'Monarchy and Modernity, 1500-1945', University of Cambridge, 8-9 January 2019

The conference announced on the cfp below was originally designed for Europeanists, but was opened up to all world areas following multiple requests by non-Europeanists to participate. The cfp has therefore been revised and the deadline extended to August 15, 2018. Please note that all proposals previously submitted remain valid and, where applicable, accepted.

Future of Food Studies 2018 CFP

The Graduate Association for Food Studies is pleased to announce the third annual Future of Food Studies graduate student conference, to be held 4-6 October 2018, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Additionally, a select number of papers will be considered for publication in the Graduate Journal of Food Studies, a peer-reviewed graduate journal for food-related research.

Theories of agricultural growth

Would love opinions from those in various disciplines on this:

Schultz's Transforming Traditional Agriculture and Boserup's Conditions of Agricultural Growth appeared in 1964 and 1965.  Both are landmarks but the books had some crucial differences, especially in the importance of external inputs in peasant agriculture.  Which would you say has been more influential in the end?

This is for something I'm writing that would benefit from some differing perspectives.
