A Fulbright Experience in Honduras by Dr. Catherine Tucker
September 30, 2021 | 12:00 - 1:30 pm ET

presented by The Fulbright Lecture Committee

Dr. Catherine M. Tucker is a professor of Anthropology and Associate Director of Academic Affairs for the Center for Latin American Studies at UF. She is a cultural anthropologist
exploring human-environment interactions, environmental governance and local adaptation to global change processes. Her current work examines how Honduran coffee producers and their organizations are handling market volatility, climate change, economic stress and political uncertainties. Working collaboratively with smallholder coffee cooperatives, she is helping them to evaluate whether fair trade, environmental certifications, and local innovations are improving livelihood security and environmental sustainability. She received a Fulbright Flex Fellowship for 2018-2020 to further her research and support the educational mission of her host institution, the Regional University of Western Honduras, part of the National Autonomous University of Honduras (CUROC-UNAH).
