11th Annual McGrann Conference:
Small Scale Agriculture in an Era of Global Change: Landscapes & Livelihoods
The continued transformation of global agro-food systems, rapid changes in natural ecosystems, and growing conflicts over land-based resources are just a few of the many challenges shaping human-environmental relationships around the globe, often producing uneven and unjust outcomes for marginalized and vulnerable groups. The 2019 MaGrann conference seeks to bring together scholars in geography and other related disciplines to discuss emerging themes around the ways smallholder practices and landscape outcomes are related. A major focus of the conference will be to explore how global trends in labor and food markets reconfigure the production of agricultural commodities, how these land based production systems are linked to smallholder practices, and the way these practices in turn (re)configure landscapes and their provision of ecosystem services.
