Tune in to The Graduates next Tuesday for a rocking interview with Juliet Lu from the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management at UC Berkeley. Juliet is a political ecologist studying the power dynamics involved with the rubber production industry in China and in Laos. In the interview, Juliet explains how political ecology is useful as a lens to explore the interplay of government policy, industry, and conservation. She also shares about her experience doing field work in China and in Laos and how she personally uses political ecology to address complex issues.
The Graduates, featuring graduate student research at Cal, is broadcast every other Tuesday on KALX 90.7 FM. Past episodes are available to listen and download free on iTunes or online. The Graduates is hosted by Erik Sathe, postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Integrative Biology.
