FPO TALKS 2023 - Dr Rowan Lubbock: Fields and Frontiers: Agriculture and the Making of International (Dis)Order

The Future Potentials Observatory invites you to a Speaker Series event titled “FPO TALKS” presented by Dr Rowan Lubbock, Lecturer in International Political Economy of Development at Queen Mary University, London.

His previous research examined the politics of food sovereignty within Venezuela and the Latin American regional institution, the ALBA-TCP (Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples Trade Treaty), as well as the historical sociology of Latin American regionalism more broadly.
His current project expands on these topics, with a critical analysis of agriculture in the making of international (dis)order. With specific focus on the historical formation of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, this long-term archival research project aims to shed much needed light on the ways in which humanity’s transformation of the earth simultaneously transforms ‘the international’.
