Seeking fellow panelist and chair for 2017 Ag History Conference

We are seeking a third paper to join our panel for the 2017 Agricultural History Society Conference in Grand Rapids, Michigan, June 8-10. The theme of the conference is “Who is a farmer?: Regional Identity and Rural Culture.” The two papers for the panel investigate various aspects of farmer's perceptions versus reality. We are also looking for a chair for our panel.
