Wolford Explores Mozambique's Plantation History at LSE Talk

Vice Provost Wendy Wolford presented "The Elusive Plantation: Imagining Development in Mozambique" at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The talk explored the colonial origins of Mozambique's plantations and its century-long impact on agriculture and labor. Wolford, a geographer and Robert A. and Ruth E. Polson Professor of Global Development, shared insights from her upcoming book, highlighting how the plantation's history manifests in Mozambique today.

The event, hosted by LSE's Department of Geography and Environment, included a discussion with comparative politics professor Catherine Boone. Associate professor Kasia Paprocki, a Cornell alumna and former PhD student of Wolford's, introduced the lecture.
