Recent activities, fall 2012

The start of the 2012 - 2013 academic session signals both the end of a very busy summer and the start of busy fall. Indeed, the session has already started, as I am doing my graduate teaching, Development economics, on the Master's in Development Practice Program at Emory University, Atlanta, USA. Next week sees the start of term at Trent University, and the following week I will commence teaching Human inequality in global perspective and The world food system. There will be some work to do finishing up the final touches of my next book, Hungry for Change? Farmers, Food Justice and the Agrarian Question, which Fernwood Press will publish early in 2013. I will also (finally) return to work on a long-delayed book project, An Introduction to Feminist Economics: Foundations, Theories and Policies, which is being co-written with Nicky Pouw and will be published by Routledge. I will also be busy in my continuing role as an Adviser to the United Nations Development Programme's Gender Team as they continue to roll out the Global Gender and Economic Policy Management Initiative in the Asia-Pacific and Arab States regions -- some travel to Nepal and Bahrain may take place during the fall. On top of all this, of course, my administrative responsibilities as Chair of the Department of International Development Studies will continue, particularly in light of the program review that will be undertaken by the Department over the course of 2012 - 2013. It will, in other words, be business as usual -- which is to say, it will be hectic.
