Africa at Noon: Environmental Governance in Africa with Josh Garoon

February 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Date/Time: February 1st 2023, @12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Speaker: Josh Garoon – Communication and Environmental Sociology, UW-Madison

Hosted by: Luís Madureira



I study the ways in which health, development, and the environment intersect across Africa and the United States, and how those intersections manifest in health inequalities at the local level. I’m particularly interested in how health inequalities are shaped by global, national, and local stakeholders’ attempts to define and act on community and neighborhood resources; in short, I investigate environmental governance. My work cuts across anthropology, sociology, and epidemiology, and my projects in both Africa and the U.S. employ a community-engaged research framework.
