Prof. Dr. Susan Paulson
Fellow (November 2017 - December 2017)
Much of Susan Paulson’s research explores ways in which gender, class, and ethnoracial systems interact with biophysical environments, including bodies and landscapes.
She lived for 15 years in South America, working in graduate programs at CESU in Bolivia and CBC in Perú, and teaching intermittently at FLACSO-Ecuador. At Miami University Paulson directed Latin American Studies for 7 years, and at Lund University in Sweden helped to launch a new graduate program in Culture, Power and Sustainability.
In recent years she has been collaborating with international interdisciplinary teams on two research and theory building projects: one on rural territorial dynamics in Latin America, the other on the emerging paradigm of degrowth.
