Rita Calvário


Biography

From 2018-2021 I was a postdoc researcher in the project JUSTFOOD - From Alternative Food Movements to Environmental Justice Struggles at CES. I'm a social and environmental scientist with research interests in political ecology, agrarian movements, solidarity economies, food justice, food sovereignty, and emancipatory politics. In December 2016 I finished my PhD in the Institut de Ciència i Tecnologia Ambientals, Autonomous University of Barcelona (ICTA-UAB) as part of the project ENTITLE-European Network of Political Ecology, an EU-funded Initial Training Network under the Marie Curie action of FP7. I developed my PhD thesis on "Building Emancipatory Strategies, Producing Political Subjects: Alternative Food Economies in the Basque Country and Greece in the Crisis". I've completed my undergraduate studies in Agronomy, with specialization in Rural Sociology and Agrarian Economics. I hold a Master Degree in Environmental Politics and Territorial Planning. I'm a member of the thematic line 4 and the ECOSOC research networks at CES.
