From our peers in the Environmental Studies Program:
The fall 2019 Howard E. Woodin Environmental Studies Colloquium Series is here! You can view the full schedule here on the ES website.
The series kicks off Thursday September 12th at 12:30 p.m. in Hillcrest 103 with guest speaker Laura-Anne Minkoff-Zern, Assistant Professor of Food Studies at Syracuse University giving a talk titled “The New American Farmer: Immigration, Race, and the Struggle for Sustainability.”
Dr. Minkoff-Zern’s research and teaching broadly explores the interactions between food and racial justice, labor movements, and transnational environmental and agricultural policy. This focus builds on her extensive experience with sustainable development and agricultural biodiversity projects abroad, combined with work on migrant health issues domestically. She has spent many years working on farms and with agriculture and food organizations in Guatemala, New York, and California. Her current project builds on previous research, where she found that a significant population of farmworkers and other first-generation Latino immigrants to the United States aspire to be small-scale farmers. In this work, she explores immigrant farmers’ roles in agrarian change in the United States today. She earned a Ph.D. in Geography from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.A. from Cornell University, where she graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of arts in sustainable agriculture and development and a concentration in Latin American studies.
