Introduction to Sociology
Society and Global Development
My research focuses on the global food system, examining the intersection of environmental and social processes in the context of food production, consumption, and distribution. My current research project studies the Mediterranean bluefin tuna fishery, concentrating on Sicily and Sardinia, which has been exploited for its abundant tuna for over a millennium. This work looks at the long history of the fishery and analyzes the recent transformations that have affected social life and the environment in fishing communities.
