For the interested, I'm posting a link to the latest version of my dissertation prospectus, Freedom and Food, Slavery and Agriculture: A Philosophical Ecology of Democracy. I sincerely welcome any comments you may have, constructive, deconstructive, or reconstructive. Though I'm just starting to write in earnest, it's still very much in a form receptive to comments and criticisms of various sorts. As such, please do not cite or otherwise use any of this material without permission. So enjoy, and let me know what you think!
