The graduate seminar this spring will include three distinct pieces: first, an intensive reading of the classics in agrarian studies around the topics of state formation, economic exchange and systems, colonization and post-colonial studies, development, and environmental politics; second, regular attendance and participation in the weekly public symposium series; and third, organization of a student-led workshop to be held in early May with papers presented by the seminar participants. In order to prepare for the student-led workshop, we will select one keynote speaker to give a talk on the day of the workshop, and students will read each other's papers and work on their own throughout the semester.

When Offered Fall.
