Graduate Student



Research interests: agroecology, regenerative agriculture, soil cultures, waste, (social) reproduction, degrowth.


Ingrid Feeney is a PhD student in Sociocultural Anthropology and Environmental Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She holds a BA in Linguistics from CUNY Brooklyn College and an MA in Anthropology from the University of Chicago. Her interests, very broadly stated, are in Environmental Justice praxis and involve looking at the entangled production of capitalist value, hunger, global health inequality, and environmental despoilment. 
Her dissertation research blends insights from political ecology, feminist science studies, and critical anthropologies of race to examine how competing paradigms of agriculture (i.e., agribusiness and agroecology) mobilize contrasting regimes of Nature/culture, race, gender, and the body in the territorialization of divergent agrarian futures.
