The Cultural Studies Colloquium Series Presents:

Melissa L. Caldwell
Professor, Anthropology, UCSC
Co-Director, UCMRP on Studies of Food and the Body

“Sowing the Seeds of Civil Society: Russia’s Garden Democracy”

Professor Caldwell examines the politics of poverty, social welfare, care and intimacy in Russia through ethnographic research in Dacha Idylls: Living Organically in Russia’s Countryside (California 2011). Her new research is on Russian-African assistance and development relations in the twentieth century. She also studies changing food practices in the postsocialist world.
