I'm looking for two panelists, a chair, and a discussant for the 2012 WHA conference. The topics of the conference are two: "Frontier and borders in World history" and "Indigenous peoples in WH."
I'm looking for a panel that could discuss how scientific knowledge attempted to penetrate the borders of "ignorance" and/or "indifference" of the general population. It also could look at how the broader population would react or interact with science.
My paper will deal with the interaction between local horticulturists and professors of horticulture and the industrial/urban workers with vegetable gardens in early twentieth-century France. The paper will examine what specific knowledge the horticulturalists wished to teach their local workers, how they attempt to disseminate the knowledge to the workers, and probably how the workers would react to these specialists.
I look forward to all brilliant papers!
