LEWISBURG, Pa. — Joel Wainwright will give the lecture, "Agriculture, Liberalization, and the World Trade Organization," Thursday, March 1, at 7 p.m. in the Gallery Theatre of the Elaine Langone Center at Bucknell University.

The lecture, which is free to the public, is sponsored by the Bucknell geography department.

A professor of geography at Ohio State University, Wainwright graduated with honors in geography and an environmental studies major from Bucknell in 1995. He went to Belize on a Fulbright Scholarship and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota on a MacArthur Fellowship.

His work lies at the intersection of development geography and political ecology, drawing on colonial history and development, globalization and the ways in which contemporary social groups struggle against it, and theoretical inquiries into nature, capital, and spatiality.

Wainwright's first book, Decolonizing Development: Colonialism, Mayanism, and Agriculture in Belize, is forthcoming.
