Tore Olsson: The American South, Mexico, and Land Reforms in the 1930s

Tore Olsson (University of Tennessee) writes:

Hola Manuel y Allison – thanks so much for what you are doing to unite scholars in the fields of US-Mexico relations. I’m so excited that this forum now exists, and it will undoubtedly move our field forward.

Because you are soliciting “news” in the field, at the risk of shameless self-promotion I wanted to share with you an article that I had published this month. Titled “Sharecroppers and Campesinos: The American South, Mexico, and the Transnational Politics of Land Reform in the Radical 1930s” (Journal of Southern History, August 2015), it explores how Mexican revolutionary agrarismo inspired rural reformers in the U.S. New Deal who hoped to apply its lessons to the plantation zones of the U.S. South. I wanted to share this with you mainly because it was published in a U.S. journal that might not draw the eye of Mexicanist readers otherwise, and also because there’s not enough work illustrating South-North flows of influence in the twentieth century.
