Research seminar “Boundaries of History”, presentation by D.Darrow "Categories of Agrarian Reform: The Varied Meaning of the Labor Norm in the Operations of The Peasant Land Bank"

Event ended
On December 10 at 18.30 David Darrow (Associate Professor; Director of University Honors Program,University of Dayton) will give a presentation titled "Categories of Agrarian Reform: The Varied Meaning of the Labor Norm in the Operations of The Peasant Land Bank" at the regular research seminar “Boundaries of History” of the Centre for Historical Research and the Department of History of the Higher School of Economics in Saint Petersburg.

The land allotment remained central to the process of agrarian reform from the Emancipation through the Revolution.  Defining the land allotment in measurable universalistic terms, however, was less clear.  By the end of the nineteenth century, three different measures, three different types of norms, coexisted among experts and policy makers: the Emancipation norm, the consumption norm, and the labor norm.  Each of these norms meant something different to those who employed it and thus represented a different view of how to shape and manage the peasant economy, and a different conception of the peasantry's place in the Empire.
