About Lorena Campuzano Duque

I am a Ph.D in Environmental History with experience in academic writing, research, and teaching. I analyzed in my dissertation the conflict between artisanal mining, foreign companies, and the state from 1820 to 1952 studying the environmental, technological, and social transformations of one of Colombia’s most important mining zones, Northeastern Antioquia. I am interested in how the interrelationship of science, environment, and vernacular practices shape the way Latin American states and people use natural resources and approach to nature. Besides teaching and researching in environmental humanities, I have previously worked as a part of an editorial team publishing scientific books and I have a background in Physics. I am also an active member of the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Historia Ambiental y del Caribe (SOLCHA) and the American Society of Environmental History (ASEH).
Doctora en historia de América Latina de la State University of New York at Binghamton.
