This option is an opportunity for advanced work within the From the Earth program for a small number of Junior-Senior students with a strong academic background in one or a combination of the following: history, sociology, creative writing, literature, political economy, cultural studies, or critical race studies. Students with this background will participate in all of the activities, readings, and assignments of From the Earth: The History, Stories, and Social Justice of Farming in the U.S., but also be asked to complete longer and more in-depth assignments. These students will also act as peer mentors for the lower-division students in the class, and will have opportunities for ongoing critique on projects with program faculty.
