Tibetan and Himalayan Lifeworlds Exhibit

January 6, 2017

An exhibit providing a window onto the unique culture and environment of the ‘Roof of the World' opens today at the Baker-Berry Library. "Tibetan and Himalyan Lifeworlds" explores the social and religious practices that shape life in Asia’s high mountain environments, explores the political history of the region, and describes some of the encounters between foreigners and Himalayan and Tibetan people over time. The exhibit has been curated by Senior Lecturer Kenneth Bauer and Associate Professor Sienna Craig. Bauer also leads the Human Development initiative at the Dickey Center for International Understanding. 

Davis Projects For Peace

Deadline: January 11, 2017

The Davis Projects for Peace Program supports young people to create and test their own ideas for building peace. Dartmouth students are invited to design grassroots projects that they implement in the summer. The program has enabled Dartmouth students, individually and in teams, to undertake projects aimed at the promotion of peace around the world.

Human Development Fellowship

Dartmouth has a cadre of faculty, researchers, and students—not to mention the Dartmouth alumni—actively working in human development. However, few opportunities exist for students to develop the technical skills and professional experiences necessary to work in international development. The Human Development Fellowship program aims to help a select group of Dartmouth’s top students build these skills and attain these experiences.

Assistant Professor of Geography

As a political ecologist trained in geography's nature-society tradition, I seek to explain relationships between the material world (microbes, crops, and economies) and the way people understand that world (as mitigated through institutions, culture, and experience).  In particular, I research the interactions among local people and government or development workers, as well as between people and non-human actors like crops, nutrients, and witchcraft. This approach reveals that by paying attention to, for example, the addition of beetroot to gardens and cooking pots, the abandonment of long-standing healing rituals, and the failure of anti-tuberculosis campaigns, we can understand how local people and places shape state and international development initiatives.  In my research, I use a mix of methods including oral history collection, ethnography, household surveys, focus groups, participatory GIS, and archival research to understand local thinking and practices.  To understand non-human actors, I use epidemiological and ecological data and scientific work (with a critical eye to the social production of that work).

My current work breaks down into two main areas.  First, in a series of co- and single-authored articles, I lay out a political ecology of health empirically, theoretically, and methodologically.  So doing, I reveal how local people and the interactions of microbes inside of their bodies challenge global health care protocols and the multinational funders that support them.  To do this work, I call for a Marxist-feminist approach, which shows how uneven global political-economic processes manifest in bodies which are embedded in local social and cultural contexts.  Methodologically, I argue that a political ecology of health requires a place-based approach that uses a mix of methods from qualitative and quantitative toolkits, which includes ethnography to situate research in the lived experience and knowledge of patients, family members, and health care workers. This series of articles draws from and adds to the work of political ecologists, critical medical anthropologists, and African Studies scholars.

Second, my book manuscript in progress, Witchcraft and Wellness: Agency and Change in Twentieth-Century South Africa, explores questions of agency – who and what causes change – in the context of two state development interventions – in health and in agricultural planning – in mid-twentieth-century Pholela, South Africa.  Based on two years of research, Witchcraft and Wellness focuses on the evolution of local understandings about health and environment by examining the knowledge of both residents and the health and agricultural experts who came to Pholela. So doing, it employs an expansive framework for health which reveals that vitamins, pathogens, witchcraft, and ancestors all play a role in illness and wellness in Pholela. I argue that using a local framework illuminates how new explanations of disease transmission and the forced removal of a homestead can lead to changes in local livelihoods and healing practices. Take the example of tuberculosis, which first arrived in the lungs of men returning to Pholela from work in the cities.  For the health center's staff, a bacterium causes tuberculosis.  Passed through inhalation or ingestion, TB causes a terrible cough, night sweats, and weight loss; if untreated, it often leads to death.  For health center doctors, these symptoms unambiguously indicated tuberculosis.  For Pholela's residents, however, they could indicate a couple of different illnesses (including TB), caused by different things, including microbes and witchcraft.  For residents, these symptoms could just as easily be caused by a witchcraft-related illness called idliso, contracted when a person mistakenly ingested an umuthi (a potion or medicine) sent by an umthakathi (a person who sends witchcraft).  In order to understand this and other examples, Witchcraft and Wellness poses the question: What could we learn if we understood that both microbes and witchcraft make people sick? On a theoretical level, this forces us to think differently about what causes illness and change more broadly (agency).  On a practical level, exploring how witchcraft causes illness changes the way we think about health programs in places like Pholela and sub-Saharan Africa more generally.  African and Agrarian Studies scholars have written much about human agency, especially in circumstances where Africans interact with colonial, state, or development officials.  Geographers have explored the role of non-human (animal, plant, microbe) agency in shaping life and change.  While the work of both of these groups is enlightening, the very localized phenomenon of witchcraft sits uneasily between the two poles of human and non-human agency. I contend, therefore, that interrogating the role of witchcraft in the evolution of thinking reveals that change is always the result human and non-human actors; it is always simultaneously material and symbolic.

John Campbell's research interests span economic and political sociology, comparative political economy, and institutional theory.  He has written about energy and tax policy, the evolution of the U.S. economy, transformations of post-communist societies in Eastern Europe, corporate social responsibility, globalization, the role of ideas and experts in policymaking, and the 2008 financial crisis.  The thread connecting all of this is his interest in how institutions affect national political economies and how they change.  His most recent books are The National Origins of Policy Ideas: Knowledge Regimes in the United States, France, Germany and Denmark (Princeton University Press, 2014), which is about how policy research and advising is conducted in different countries, and The World of States (Bloomsbury Press, 2015), which is about how nation-states in different parts of the world have responded to globalization and other changes in the international political economy.  He is currently writing a new book, The Paradox of Vulnerability: Small Nation-States and the Financial Crisis (Princeton University Press, forthcoming), which is about how small countries responded to the 2008 financial crisis.

The Paradox of Vulnerability: Small States, Nationalism and the Financial Crisis

Why do small culturally homogeneous advanced capitalist countries tend to be especially successful in today's global economy?  This project examines the proposition that their success stems from the fact that they have developed a strong sense of vulnerability and national identity, and, in turn, institutional capacities for maneuvering successfully in an increasingly volatile international economy.  The importance of national identity and nationalism more generally has been neglected by most economic sociologists and comparative political economists.  Quantitative analylsis of OECD data as well as detailed historical case studies are used to develop and test the argument.  Preliminary results have been published in Nations and Nationalism, the Review of International Political Economy, Ethnic and Racial StudiesNew Political Economy and the European Journal of Sociology.  Based on a variety of data sources, including many interviews with policymakers, regulatory officials, central bankers, and others, the project  shows through detailed historical case studies how Denmark, Ireland and Switzerland among other countries responded to the 2008 financial crisis as they did due to their experiences as small countries with particular national identities.  Results will appear in The Paradox of Vulnerabililty: Small States, Nationalism and the Financial Crisis (Princeton University Press, 2017).

Professor of Geography and Environmental Studies

My research and teaching interests come together around the question of how to reconcile human activities with the long-term resilience and vulnerability of ecological systems. Most of my work has focused on human uses of water and, in particular, on the transformation of river basins due to large-scale development. Much of this research has focused on "third world" settings in the twentieth century-e.g., the Mekong River Basin-but has applications to a variety of historical and geographical contexts. One of my primary interests is analysis of social conflicts over water, and a current project (working with colleagues in Dartmouth's Geography Department) examines the social dimensions of dam removal in New England. At a theoretical level, I draw inspiration from ongoing discussions in political ecology, ecological theory, concepts of power, how to think about geographical scale, and ideas regarding nature-society relations. I recently completed a book titled Concrete Revolution: Large Dams, Cold War Geopolitics, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation published by the University of Chicago Press and due for release in September 2015. At Dartmouth, I teach courses on political ecology, nature-society relations, qualitative research methods, the geopolitics of development, the envrionmental politics of Southeast Asia, and environmental history.

My education and experiences over the past 15 years reflect these interests. After receiving a B.S. in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin in 1987, I served in the U.S. Peace Corps as a fisheries volunteer in the province of Kalinga-Apayao, Republic of the Philippines from 1988 to 1990. This was a transformative experience, and paved the way for my current interests in combining ecological knowledge and social theory to address complex environmental dilemmas in the context of internaitonal development. I completed my M.S. in Resource Policy and Planning at the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and Environment in 1993. My Master's research focused on environmental movements in Southeast Asia. My doctoral research, which culminated with a Ph.D. in Geography at the University of Minnesota in 2000, focused on conflicts over water in Northeast Thailand.

My research examines the extent to which formal institutional rules shape the possibilities for achieving gender equality. I focus on three particular sets of formal rules: human rights treaties, specifically the United Nations’ Convention to Eliminate All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), gender quota laws, which require political parties to nominate female candidates for office, and the Equal Rights Amendment in the United States. In 2014, Cambridge University Press published Defying Convention: US Resistance to the UN Treaty on Women’s Rights, which examines the history of CEDAW, the reasons why the U.S. has not ratified it and what impact it might have in the U.S. if it were ratified.
