Irreconciliable Differences? A Feminist-Postcolonial Reading of Gender, Development and Human Rights in Latin America


Professor Sharlene Mollet's wide-ranging research deals with critical development geography, race and racilization, feminist political ecology, property rights, political ecology, biodiversity, Indigenous and Afro-descendant land struggles, postcolonial geographies, Indigenous feminism, feminist theory, feminist methods, ethnographic methods, and gender and land rights with a focus on Latin America, Honduras and Panama.

At the Association of American Geographers conference in San Francisco on March 31, 2016, she delivered the Jan Monk Distinguished Lecture, a distinction awarded to a prominent scholar who has made significant contributions to feminist geography. Professor Mollet's Intersections presentation will be based on that Lecture, which will be published in the journal Gender, Place and Culture.
