About Ellinor Isgren
I work as senior lecturer at the School of Global Studies, where I teach and supervise mainly within human ecology and global studies.
I am also a researcher at Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS), where I lead the research project "Mobilizing farmer organisations for sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa".
I have a PhD in Sustainability Science (LU) and a background in Environmental Science and Agricultural Science. My main research interest is the intersection of agriculture, development and sustainability, especially in smallholder contexts, and processes of social and political mobilization in rural areas. A more detailed research profile, and publications, can be found here.
As a teacher, I enjoy guiding students through the many complex issues that 'sustainable development' entail, and especially to help students gain better understanding of the social drivers of environmental problems (and what, as a result, needs changing). In particular, I have taught on courses and components to do with rural development, agriculture and food security/sovereignty, and social movements.
