Welcome to the Yale Program in Agrarian Studies
2012–2013 Academic Year
Welcome to the Program in Agrarian Studies at Yale University. You are at the front door of the [nearly] text-only version of the web site. Both the main (graphical) site and this text-only shadow site provide the same information about the Program.
- For a capsule description of the Program, see: About Agrarian Studies
- For a full exposition of the scope of the Program, see: the Theme
- For frequently asked questions about the Program, see: the Agrarian Studies FAQ
- For the structure of the site, and for art and construction credits, see: About this site
Other essential elements of the dual site include: the Colloquium series and its current schedule; the theme; the resident fellows program; the faculty, staff, and fellows; how to apply for available financial aid; how to contact the program; the team-taught graduate seminar. The navigation bars on the left of the screens take you directly to most of the places you'll want to go.
A map to help out-of-town visitors find the Agrarian Studies office and the ISPS building where Colloquium sessions are held is available on the Contact Info page. (These are the only elements on the shadow site that contain graphics.) Biographies of faculty and fellows are added as they become available.
Consult the news page frequently for announcements of special events and new activities; for reminders of upcoming scheduled events and impending deadlines; and for last-minute changes to scheduled events, such as Colloquium sessions.
Schedules of past Colloquia, information about fellows from past years, and Agrarian Studies special events are archived for permanent reference. This includes two micro-sites: 1) Agrarian Studies 2000, a major conference which celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Agrarian Studies Program in the spring of 2000, and 2) The Chicken, an international conference on the biological, social, cultural, and industrial history of the chicken from neolithic middens to McNuggets, in May of 2002.
