University Hall, Room 110
Tom Leatherman

From Hacienda to Globalization:
the Political Ecology of Health and Production in the Southern Andes

This talk traces the shifting landscapes of land, livelihood, economy, and health across three moments in recent Peruvian history: from an initial agrarian reform implemented in the 1970s, through a protracted civil war in the late 1980s and 1990s, to a second agrarian reform and present-day period of more intense globalization of regional and local economies. These moments had key impacts on access to land, the structure of rural livelihoods, and health. Intense spaces of vulnerability characterized much of this landscape up to and through the civil war between revolutionary forces of Sendero Luminoso and Tupac Amaru and the Peruvian State.

More recently, changing access to land and production regimes following a second agrarian reform provide spaces of hope for newly formed indigenous communities. Dr. Leatherman traces this history in the District of Nuñoa, a site of anthropological study during each of these historic moments. Using a political ecology of health approach, he links shifting economic and social landscapes to food security, nutrition and health, and the ways that health can both reflect and affect the livelihoods and economies of rural households in Nuñoa.

Dr. Leatherman is the Chair of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and is the Director of the Five-College Program in Culture, Health and Science.
