Women Organic Farmers Topic of Next 'Unconventional Careers in Anthropology' Series
The third installment of “Unconventional Careers in Anthropology and the Liberal Arts” will feature speaker Dr. Tatiana Abatemarco, who will share her research into women organic farmers in Vermont, Wednesday, March 29 from noon to 1 in the Mowry Conference Room, Redcay Hall.
Abatemarco will address what these women farmers value and how those values are expressed through farming. She also draws parallels with her own journey and the tension many women feel between staying home and pursuing a career.
Abatemarco has a master’s in philosophy from the University of Minnesota and a Ph.D. in natural resources from the University of Vermont. She teaches for Green Mountain College’s graduate programs in sustainable food systems and resilient and sustainable communities.
