Kate Brown

Kate Brown is Professor of Science, Technology and Society at Massachusetts Institute for Technology at Boston, USA (MIT). From September to January she will be a fellow at NIAS, where she will be working on a book on self-provisioning in urban little gardens. Brown’s research interests illuminate the point where history, science, technology and bio-politics converge to create large-scale disasters and modernist wastelands. Based on her extensive knowledge in this field, she will share some thoughts and reflections on the history and future of urban farming.
