’Epistemologies of Land’ Webcast Series – Shailaja Fennell – 17 June 2021 | Time TBC

Abstract: The ‘Epistemologies of Land’ webcast series will host international experts for discussions on the epistemology of land, ahead of a related publication which will highlight the role of the land on, and with which, human relations are enacted and how this land affects the knowledge that is generated and brought to use in social relations. The events are open to interested graduate and postgraduate researchers.

Speaker: Shailaja Fennell is a Reader in Regional Transformation and Economic Security at the Department of Land Economy and a Fellow of Jesus College at the University of Cambridge.

She is a Co-I on TIGR2ESS (Global Challenges Fund of RCUK ), a research programme to study how to improve crop productivity and water use, identify appropriate crops and farming practices for sustainable rural development. She is also a Co-I on MillNeti, a sister research programme (2019-2021) that is focussed on how to improve iron nutrition status of people living in Ethiopia and The Gambia by assessing the bioavailability of iron from biofortified millet. Her work package focuses on the use of quantitative and qualitative surveys to understand how millets are currently grown, processed, cooked and consumed in focus villages in The Gambia and Ethiopia.

Shailaja is the PI on an ASEAN funded project (2019-2021), and leading a core team responsible for designing the framework, commissioning the experts and compiling the latest research to deliver the first ASEAN Development Outlook that focuses on policies to ensure inclusion and sustainability in South-East Asia.
