Angie Carter

Home State/Country:  Iowa

Degree Sought:  PhD

Home Department:  Sociology

Major Professor(s):  Rebecca Christoffel and David Schweingruber

Research Interests:
My research focuses on natural resource management and social inequality within agricultural and food systems.  Specifically, I have focused on the the sociological aspects of water quality in Iowa.  In my master's thesis, I analyzed the role of partnerships and community collaboration in a pilot urban fishing program in Des Moines, IA.  My dissertation project is funded through an EPA Region 7 Wetland Development Grant and is called Navigating the Waters: A Wetland Development Guide for Agencies and Organizations Working with Women Landowners.  This 3 1/2 year project is in partnership with the Women, Food and Agriculture Network and will study women landowners' engagement in wetland restoration in Iowa.  The project will include a women landowner survey to learn more about this important and growing group of landowners in IA, Learning Circles and Field Days, IOWATER workshops, and a network analysis.  More information about this project can be found here.
