Here in Honors I… am Director and I also teach in Honors. My classes focus on poverty, inequality and feminist care ethics.  I am a Professor of Geography and I have worked across South and North America on informal economies, women’s work and poverty.

I spent lots of time thinking about… all the great work that Honors students, staff and faculty are doing together. I am also co-director of the Relational Poverty Network, which is a global research network that aims to expand thinking about the causes of poverty in both rich and poor countries. We have over 300 members from every continent and you can see their projects by searching Relational Poverty Network.

My first week in college… I met some amazing women who have become life-long friends.
