Farm Workers in the Machine

(p.1) Introduction
Farm Worker Futurism

Curtis Marez

University of Minnesota Press

The introduction analyzes the competing visual cultures of agribusiness futurism and farm worker futurism in order to theorize what I call campesino modernity, a social formation based in the appropriation of visual technology to project alternate futures or even the possibility of the future as such for the poor and marginalized.

Keywords:   visual culture, agribusiness, futurism, farm worker, campesino modernity, projection, inequality, agricultural history
