Peasants Into European Farmers?

EU Integration in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania

Peasants Into European Farmers?

This is an ethnographic analysis of how the EU's Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) was deployed by policy makers and elites in the first year after EU membership, and how it shaped peasant livelihoods. Given the polarised nature of Romania's postsocialist agrarian structure, the CAP excluded peasants from its policies, and demanded they change their subsistence farms into commercial farms. Arguing from the premise that subsistence farms are actually peasant households working on different principles from farms altogether, it was possible to inquire into the resourceful strategies people deployed in their everyday lives.

Toronto Architect Edmund Burke

Redefining Canadian Architecture

Toronto Architect Edmund Burke

Burke's career spanned a key period in Canadian architecture as the profession transcended its colonial beginnings to reach maturity with Canadian-born practitioners who converted both American architectural developments and European traditions into forms appropriate to the new Canadian federation. Burke's contributions to Canadian architecture include introducing the technology of the "Chicago men" to Canada and helping to establish a formal professional organization for architects in Ontario. Carr documents a comprehensive selection of Burke's works, including his firm's famous Robert Simpson store in Toronto, the first curtain-wall construction in Canada. She places Burke's life and career within the larger social context, addressing the influence of American architects and architecture, the sociology of professions, the organization of architectural offices, and the history of particular building forms. Toronto Architect Edmund Burke is not only a study of Burke's life and work; it is also an insightful look into the history of Canadian architecture.
