12-1 p.m.
The efforts of small development NGOs to introduce agro-ecology in remote regions of Nicaragua categorized as fragile and barely fit for agriculture, create structures of surveillance and control that challenge the ideal of peasant autonomy. In this lecture, Professor Birgit Müller will examine the national and international compensation schemes that influence these practices and create global chains of governance. Co-sponsored by the Center for Culture, History and the Environment.
