Polson Institute for Global Development Seminar

In the Struggle, a new book co-authored by Daniel J. O’Connell PhD '11 and Professor Scott J. Peters, traces an historical arc of activist scholars in California who fought not only against industrial agribusiness but also for vital principles of equity, economic justice, community vitality, and ecological well-being. Following an overview by the authors of the book’s central elements and findings, four faculty members, graduate students, and community leaders will briefly share their perspectives, aspirations and experiences on activist scholarship and political engagement. All participants will then be invited to join the conversation.
