Colloquium - Dr. Casey Walsh 

Friday, November 15 at 12:00 pm
Interdisciplinary Building B, room 161B.

Talk title TBD

Dr. Walsh is an associate professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Walsh's research focuses on the anthropological political economy of the Mexico-US borderlands. He studies the ways in which water, land and labor have been organized to produce commodities in areas marked by aridity, especially northern Mexico and the southwestern United States. This work took the form of a socioeconomic and cultural history (Building the Borderlands) of irrigated cotton agriculture in the borderlands, and in particular, northeastern Mexico.
