Meet Gabriela Valdivia, Assistant Dean of Honors Carolina
October 6, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Dean Valdivia is a Professor of Geography and Assistant Dean for Honors Carolina. Her research examines the political dimensions of natural resource governance in Latin America: how Latin American states, firms, and civil society appropriate and transform resources to meet their interests, and how capturing and putting resources to work transforms cultural and ecological communities.
She grew up in Peru and conducted ethnographic research in Ecuador and Bolivia, and brings these experiences into her introductory courses on Latin America and advanced undergraduate courses on the political ecology of rural Latin America.
Dean Valdivia earned her undergraduate degree from Macalester College, her master’s from UNC-Chapel Hill, and her PhD degree from the University of Minnesota. Join us for an informal conversation with Dean Valdivia on the Graham Memorial Terrace. This event is sponsored by Honors Carolina. RSVP on the Go Anywhere Platform.
