While in residence, Amalia Leguizamón worked towards completing a manuscript entitled Seeds of Power: Genetically Modified Crops and Socio-Environmental Change in Argentina.
Leguizamón is a sociologist interested in the political economy of the environment in Latin America. She is curious about the power dynamics that fuel development projects in the region and their uneven impact on society and the environment. She pays attention to those corporate and state actors who promote these natural resource extraction projects, the technologies they implement, and the socio-environmental movements that have emerged to contest them.
