Tony Weis

Tony Weis is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Western Ontario. In 2003-04, he was Senior Researcher at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Guyana. Tony’s research interests include agrarian change/food systems/small farming, political ecology, land reform/social movements and Caribbean political economy. His current research examines how global agro-production and trade patterns are interacting with the spatial marginality of small farmers, related social and environmental problems, and struggles for land reform. In general, he combines critical analyses of political economic structures and the historical foundations of uneven landscapes with a locally contoured approach that emphasizes the importance of peasant interpretations in understanding both problems and possibilities for change. Much of his research is in the Caribbean, especially Jamaica and Guyana. He also contributes to local activist networks involved in environmental and social justice issues.
