Biweekly lab meeting: Our lab meets every other week in Wickson 1017 with a virtual join option through Zoom. Lab meetings foster a consistent place for discussion, collaboration, and feedback on political ecology work. Graduate students usually present a “work-in-progress” (grant application, data collection tool, qualifying exam materials, paper outlines or drafts etc.) and receive feedback; or graduate students propose a topic of discussion related to political ecology with 1-3 short optional readings. Topics have included: critical infrastructural studies; feminist political ecology; resilience and adaption; and more. 

Our 2019-2020 biweekly lab meeting calendar is here. You can see resources from past meetings including recommended readings at our Google Drive here (request access).

2019 Spring retreat
May 5-7th 2019 UC Davis’ Political Ecology Lab held its first ever research and writing retreat at Bodega Marine Lab. The aim of the retreat was to continue cementing our intercampus network by bringing together graduate students and faculty from across campus to think, write, organize and develop new projects around intersecting topics in political ecology. The retreat featured a facilitated discussion on our converging and diverging definitions of political ecology, a panel on interdisciplinary perspectives and approaches to political ecology and graduate student breakouts on topics of shared interest as well as individual writing time and planning for next year.
