Meet Our Faculty: Rachel Schurman

November 2, 2017

Rachel Schurman is a Professor of Global Studies and Sociology with an interdisciplinary background (BA and MA in Economics and a PhD in Sociology).  She studies the Green Revolution in Africa and teaches classes on “Supercapitalism” and the political economy of food systems.  “I think of Global Studies as an approach to the world that recognizes that no country is independent, and we are totally and deeply interconnected to other countries and other people.“  She believes the Global Studies core courses give students “one of the best undergraduate educations they can get.”  Learn more about Rachel Schurman.
