Youjin Chung, Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Geography, Clark University. Youjin is a human geographer and sociologist with research interests in the political economy of development, feminist theory and political ecology, food and agrarian studies, and participatory visual ethnography, with a regional focus on eastern and southern Africa, particularly Tanzania. Her current work examines how agrarian life and livelihoods in post-socialist Tanzania articulate with the global rush for farmland, and how these relational processes (re)shape the multidimensional identities of Tanzanians and their relationships to the state, society, and the environment. Youjin holds a dual bachelors degree in international studies and journalism from Korea University. She earned two masters degrees in development studies from the University of Cambridge, and in development sociology from Cornell University.
