About the contributors

As the site grows, more contributors are added.  MacRae is ultimately responsible for the content (and the errors and omissions).


Rod MacRae - Associate Professor, Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change, York University

I'm a political agroecologist, a field that blends political ecology and agroecology (for more on the theoretical dimensions of this field, see González de Molina et al., 2019). I've worked for years with many brilliant people and our collaborations are a big part of this site.  Many graduate students have  made key contributions to my understanding of the change process and I'm grateful to them for wanting to be part of this project.  I highlight key people here.
