Agricultural research for development is a complex, multidisciplinary field, with a complicated relationship to social equity. Domestically, agriculture was central to slavery, and the land-grant system has targeted both primarily-white and historically Black universities in often unequal ways, and collaboration is not the norm. Internationally, colonial and neo-colonial inequities continue to shape development dynamics. Addressing such inequities while working within complex agricultural systems calls for interdisciplinary approaches and an understanding of historical inequities. While often not seen as interrelated, agricultural research cannot contribute to equitable social outcomes if it fails to address ongoing inequities within research systems themselves. This seminar course explores how agricultural research can lead to more equitable outcomes for farmers and societies, and how legacies of racial disparities affect who participates.
