BIO

Geography.  Environmental Studies.  Food Studies. Southern Studies.

I write and teach about food and agriculture, and the social and environmental movements associated with them.  I think about food and agriculture together as a way into conversations about culture and power.  Who has the power to access and control land, to share or shift narratives, to adapt to social and environmental change?  How do historic systems of oppression and domination manifest in contemporary food and agricultural systems?  These are some of the broad questions I explore in my research and teaching.
