We are thrilled to announce that Andrew Flachs received an honorable mention for the International Studies Association Global Development Section Book Award for his recent University of Arizona Press title, Cultivating Knowledge!
“This research addresses key issues in global development: genetic modification, agribusiness, environment destruction, etc.; but it does so from a particular vantage point: how people live global change on the level of the farm field, and how we might assess “rural well-being” from that perspective. The methodology is a political economy of knowledge and thick ethnographic work, examining the role of knowledge in people’s lived experiences and how that knowledge is utilized.”—ISA Global Development Section
