Harvest and Memory

He is the author of States of Nature: Science, Agriculture, and Environment in the Spanish Caribbean, 1780-1940. His current research explores the global environmental history of tropical crops, especially coffee.

He has published articles on the topic in the Journal of Global HistoryVaria Historia, and Revista de Historia (Costa Rica)

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
