The Journal of Latin American Geography (JLAG) and the Conference of Latin Americanist Geographers are proud to present Dr. Fernando Funes Monzote as the inaugural JLAG Lecturer. Funes Monzote’s is a Cuban agro-ecologist and farmer whose research on agro-ecology, sustainable agriculture, and Cuban rural development is widely cited both within and beyond the discipline of geography. After a short but productive academic career, Funes Monzote bought a small, dilapidated farm outside of Havana. In the five years since, he has turned the farm into a laboratory for agro-ecology and sustainable agricultural practices sustained by equal parts of horticulture, apiculture, and agro-tourism.
Dr. Funes Monzote received his M.S. in Agro-Ecology and Sustainable Rural Development from the International University of Andalucía in 1998, and his Ph.D. in Production Ecology and Resource Conservation from Wageningen University in 2008.
