Charlotte Glennie

Research Focus

I study environmental justice and food systems, with attention to the influence of urban political economy, organizations, and social movements. Considering our society's interconnected crises - environmental, health, and economic - and their disproportionate impact on low income communities, indigenous people, immigrants, and people of color, I build holistic knowledge of the problems and their solutions. With a critical focus, I work to understand both grassroots and institutional efforts at change. Using a comparative historical approach, my dissertation analyzes efforts to preserve land for community gardens in three US cities.
