Institutions and Governance Lab: UGA Anthropology

Land Notes

The Land Notes series is a platform for knowledge sharing on issues related to land and environmental governance in the "two Souths"—the southeastern United States, and the global South. It provides a platform for students, faculty, and both academic and non-academic partners to communicate key lessons from research and practice outside of narrow academic channels. It is currently hosted by the Land, Institutions and Governance Lab in the University of Georgia Anthropology Department, and is open for contributions from the wider public.
