Recent activities, fall 2017

As the 2017 - 2018 academic session gets underway, things will be busy. As usual, I will be teaching two courses in the fall term at Trent University: Human inequality in global perspective - introduction, and The world food system. However, the fieldwork that I undertook in the summer of 2017 will require that I draft and finalize two reports for the United Nations Poverty-Environment Initiative Africa, on the drivers of gender gaps in agricultural productivity in Uganda and Tanzania. As part of that work, I will also undertake fieldwork in Malawi in October, writing a report that must be completed by the end of the year. Work will also conclude on reports on the gender gap in agricultural productivity in Ethiopia and Rwanda. If that was not enough, I will lead the annual PhD School of the Canadian Association for the Study of International Development in September in Ottawa, and in November I will speak to the National Convention of the National Farmer's Union. Work will commence on a new book, of which I am co-editor: The Elgar Handbook of Critical Agrarian Studies. Several pieces that I have written will be published, and several more that are in peer review will be finalized. Finally, I have been fairly heavily involved in the development of the women's economic empowerment section of the forthcoming United Nations Development Programme Global Gender Strategy 2018 - 2021; this will require some travel as well. Of course, work as Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian Journal of Development Studies is ongoing, as is work as Associate Editor of Feminist Economics.

At the same time, I am pretty sure that over the course of the next few months something new will come up; it always does. So the fall of 2017 looks, as ever, to be crowded.
