Project
The goal of the proyect is to change my previous research and adapt it to the new context of island, archipelagos and peninsular tropical and subtropical societies. I will do environmental history of tropical and subtropical societies. Health issues, conservation and hunger or food will be addressed in this proyect. The project will begin when it finds partners interested in a Global South perspective and an interdisciplinary approach (humanities and environmental sciences).
