Current and/or Anticipated Research

I am currently researching the historical trends of self-provisioning in the United States. Self-provisioning includes anything from canning and gardening to carpentry and keeping livestock for personal consumption. I am interested in how these trends may have been influenced by changes in the development of global capitalism.
