I have been studying the drivers and impacts of large-scale metal mining in conjunction with the revival of the export-driven model of development in Latin America. In the fall of 2018, I will assist for the third time with a field experience course that takes students to Chiapas to study the adverse environmental effects of metal mining and talk with community members who are protesting these effects.
