Application for the 2019 Chase Family Travel Grant for Graduate Scholars is now open. Applications must be received via email by 5:00 PM on Friday, November 30, 2018. The Chase Family Grant is made possible through an endowment created by members of the Chase family, pioneers in Florida citrus growing. Its purpose is to enable graduate students to conduct research in the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History at the George A. Smathers Library, University of Florida.
I am looking for participants for a 3-4 person panel that focuses on the relationships of culture and power in agricultural history. Of particular interest is work that emphasizes the interconnectivity of urban and rual environments, illustrating the political tensions among bureaucrats and locals where urban policies are seen taking shape in rural environments. Papers on infrastructure, technology, social concerns, labor, and public health are welcome. Global perspectives are encouraged, and periodization is flexible. Please contact me no later than October 8th!
