Abstract
  • This thesis addresses an agricultural community facing change and its struggle to make sense of and confront both life and work. This ethnographic project situates one farming family and their neighbors from Fountaintown, North Carolina, within and against the culture of contemporary industrial agriculture. This thesis argues that habitus shapes their work and vision.
