Presented by Hugo Lucitante '19, and Mariaelena Huambachano, Presidential Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow at Brown's Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America (CSREA).
Mariaelena Huambachano's research specializes in food security/sovereignty, law and governance, food politics, research methodologies, and sustainable development. Her current research agenda examines the ‘right to food’ security of Indigenous peoples, social-political aspects of and land-based movements in response to state driven economic development in Peru, and Ecuador. Also, she is investigating indigenous food sovereignty (IFS) as a potential tool for advocacy and policy change in food systems, in New Zealand and North America.
