Description

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, agricultural practices and rural livelihoods were challenged by changes such as commercialization, intensified global trade, and rapid urbanization. Planting Seeds of Knowledge studies the relationship between these agricultural changes and knowledge-making through a transnational lens. Spanning exchanges between different parts of Europe, North and South America, the Indian subcontinent, and Africa, the wide-reaching contributions to this volume reform current historiography to show how local experiences redefined global practice.

Heinrich Hartmann is a Heisenberg Professor for Social and Economic History and the History of Technology at the Helmut Schmidt University in Hamburg. He has written a monograph, Eigensinnige Musterschüler (Campus Verlag, 2020), on expert knowledge in Turkish rural development in the twentieth century.

Julia Tischler is an associate professor of African History and co-director of the Center for African Studies at the University of Basel, Switzerland. Her first monograph, Light and Power for a Multiracial Nation (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) dealt with the history of the Kariba Dam on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
