Governing the Rainforest: The Life and Death of Sustainable Development in Amazonia

The LLILAS Benson Brazil Center presents a lecture by Eve Bratman, a political ecologist whose primary research focuses on sustainable development politics in the Brazilian Amazon. Her book-in-progress, tentatively titled "Governing the Rainforest: Sustainable Development Politics in the Brazilian Amazon," is based on ten years of research concerning the links between development policies, infrastructure, conservation, and human rights. 

Professor Bratman holds a PhD in International Relations from American University's School of International Service, and a BA with highest honors from Oberlin College. She was a Fulbright Scholar in Brazil in 2007. Prior to arriving at F&M, she taught at American University's School of International Service. At AU, she was named "Green Teacher of the Year" in 2016 for founding and supporting campus beekeeping, among other sustainability initiatives in the classroom and beyond.
