Critical Pathways Lecture - Queer Agrarian Sustainability: Look Back, Looking Forward

by Dr Michaela Hoffelmeyer


On 21 May, Critical Pathways presents a lecture by dr. Michaela Hoffelmeyer (University of Wisconsin-Madison) on queer agrarian sustainability. The lecture will be followed by drinks. 

In this seminar, dr. Hoffelmeyer will “look back” at the growing field of queer agroecology to discuss the existing research findings and theorizing related to sexuality and sustainability through the efforts of queer farms. Then dr. Hoffelmeyer will “look forward” at the potential pathways for research to broaden existing engagement in sustainable futurity through queer agrarian efforts. 

After the lecture, dr. ir. Janwillem Liebrand (International Development Studies) will act as respondent.
