UCSB graduate student wins article award

Congratulations to Doug Genens, who was recently awarded the 2019 Everett E. Edwards prize for his article “Fighting Poverty in the Fields: Legal Services and the War on Poverty in Rural California,” which is slated for publication in spring 2020. The Edwards prize is given to the best article by a graduate student accepted for publication in Agricultural History in the previous two years.  The article draws from Doug’s dissertation project, which examines rural development policy in the US after World War II.
