Friday, October 4, 2019. 9:00AM. The 11th MaGrann Conference: Small Scale Agriculture in an Era of Global Change: Landscapes & Livelihoods. Sponsored by Department of Geography, Rutgers Center for Latin American Studies, Dean of Social Behavioral Science, and Rutgers Global. More information here.
The continued transformation of global agro-food systems, rapid changes in natural ecosystems, and growing conflicts over land-based resources are just a few of the many challenges shaping human-environmental relationships around the globe, often producing uneven and unjust outcomes for marginalized and vulnerable groups. The 2019 MaGrann conference seeks to bring together scholars in geography and other related disciplines to discuss emerging themes around the ways smallholder practices and landscape outcomes are related. A major focus of the conference will be to explore how global trends in labor and food markets reconfigure the production of agricultural commodities, how these land based production systems are linked to smallholder practices, and the way these practices in turn (re)configure landscapes and their provision of ecosystem services.
