POULTRY, APPLES, AND NEW IMMIGRANTS IN THE RURAL COMMUNITIES OF THE SHENANDOAH VALLEY: AN ETHNOGRAPHIC CASE STUDY

Funder: US Department of Agriculture 

The project focused on the new settlement areas for migrants in the Shenandoah Valley. It studied the processes of industrial restructuring and rural industrialization in the Shenandoah Valley and the ways in which company policies, driven by market forces, can set in motion processes that go beyond the plant gates and orchards to recast the configuration of whole communities.
