The Agrarian Studies weekly colloquium features invited specialists who pre-circulate papers as the basis for an organized discussion by the faculty and graduate students associated with the colloquium. The Friday colloquium explores the mutual perceptions between countryside and city and the patterns of cultural and material exchange, extraction, migration, credit, legal systems, and political order that link them.
