    Selling Appropriate Development Vs. Selling-Out Rural Communities: Empowerment and Control in Indigengous Knowledge Discourse. [REVIEW]William E. O'Brien & Cornelia Butler Flora - 1992 - Agriculture and Human Values 9 (2):95-102.
    This paper looks at the languages of empowerment and control as they are expressed by authors writing about “indigenous knowledge.” We performed a content analysis on CIKARD News, a newsletter dealing with the concept of indigenous knowledge. This concept has become increasingly prominent in the discourse of alternative development, addressing issues of ecological sustainability and the empowerment of the rural poor. However, mediated by institutions that perpetuate global and local power asymmetries, the empowering potential of indigenous knowledge may be bypassed. (...)

    Greening Pesticides: A Historical Analysis of the Social Construction of Farm Chemical Advertisements. [REVIEW]Margaret M. Kroma & Cornelia Butler Flora - 2003 - Agriculture and Human Values 20 (1):21-35.
    Ideology is maintained anddriven by powerful symbols. Agricultural mediasuch as farm magazines achieve this byappropriating societal values of currency andincorporating them in imagery that accompanyadvertisements of agricultural products,including pesticides. Critical questionsrelating to environmental sustainability andsocial risks associated with the use of suchproducts are often masked as a result. Contentanalyses of two mid-western farm magazines fromthe 1940s to 1990s trace the socialconstruction of pesticide advertisements overtime, illuminating changing images ofpesticides in farm magazine advertisements inresponse to changes in the socio-culturalsetting. Changing images (...)

    Access and Control of Resources: Lessons From the Sanrem Crsp. [REVIEW]Cornelia Butler Flora - 2001 - Agriculture and Human Values 18 (1):41-48.
    Attention to differences within communities is important in working toward sustainability of an agro-ecosystem. In the Sustainable Agriculture and Natural Resource Management Collaborative Research Support Program, gender made a difference in terms of access and control over key resources – financial, human, natural, and social capital – critical for project success. Efforts to build social capital among women proved critical in developing both collective and households strategies for sustainability. The sites differed greatly in both landscape and lifescape. Women's position within (...)

    Farming Systems Approaches to International Technical Cooperation in Agriculture and Rural Life.Cornelia Butler Flora - 1988 - Agriculture and Human Values 5 (1-2):24-34.
    A farming systems approach to development has meant many things over the past 15 years, depending on its institutional and ecological setting, its target populations, and the goals motivating its implementation. Despite the diversity of approaches, and the sometimes rancorous discussion over which was best and why, the approach is now recognized in many places as the only one that can identify and respond to the needs of limited resource farm families, especially those in marginal ecosystems. Involving an iterative process (...)

    Values and the Agricultural Crisis: Differential Problems, Solutions, and Value Constraints. [REVIEW]Cornelia Butler Flora - 1986 - Agriculture and Human Values 3 (4):16-23.
    Policies are set by governments in an attempt to bring about desired ends within a society. These ends are often vaguely put and phrased in terms of values. Agrarianism, as a value, has been used to justify current farm policy. Yet, that policy has also been used as a mechanism to solve a variety of problems for the United States: those of the rural sector, farmers themselves, and even the land upon which they farm. This paper tries to separate the (...)
