Please join us for this lecture introducing the ISS’ 2012-2015 theme project, Contested Global Landscapes: Property, Governance, Economy and Livelihoods on the Ground. Commonly called the Land Project, the group is co-led by Charles Geisler (far right) and Wendy Wolford (seated front left), both from the Department of Development Sociology. They will discuss the project’s purpose, goals, and plans, including key research questions, specific projects, and future events open to the public.

Other ISS faculty fellows standing from left to right are Steven Wolf (natural resources), Paul Nadasdy (anthropology and American Indian Studies), Raymond Craib (history), Nancy Chau (applied economics and management) and Jon Parmenter (history). Seated on right is Sara Pritchard (science and technology studies).

ISS faculty fellows will be available for Q & A following the lecture. Refreshments will be served.
