Professor Catherine Corson
Catherine Corson’s research explores the politics of environmental foreign aid and international environmental governance under neoliberalism. At Mount Holyoke, Corson teaches courses on political ecology and the political economy of conservation. Her teaching is guided by three key principles. First, having progressed academically through the fields of biology, development studies, environmental economics and political ecology, she maintains a strong commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration. Second, having lived and worked in various developed and developing countries, she is a strong advocate for building awareness and understanding of other cultures. Finally, drawing on her previous political engagement, she encourages students to understand the intricacies of the political systems with which they must engage to address both environmental concerns and social justice.
