Participatory Action Research and Soils Management: gendered experiences of co-learning with small-holder farmers in Malawi
Dr. Sieg Snapp is a professor of Soils and Cropping Systems and an ecologist at Michigan State University in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences and a member of the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station, whose research interests focus on understanding the principle elements of resilient cropping systems and soil management. Dr. Snapp is committed to participatory research methods and engaging with stakeholder communities. As part of the Women and Gender in International Development discussion series, Dr. Snapp will be presenting and discussing the results of her recent research in Malawi concerning participatory action and soils management while understanding the gendered experiences of co-learning with small stakeholder farmers in Malawi.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences and the Women and Gender in International Development (WGD) program in the Office of International Research, Education, and Development (OIRED). The presentation is free and attendees are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch.
The WGD program has sponsored a discussion series for the past several years, giving students and professionals an opportunity to share their research and discuss issues of women and gender in international development. Students, faculty, staff, and members of the community are encouraged to attend the discussions and bring their ideas and questions. For the Fall 2012 discussion series schedule, please see our WGD discussion series event page.
