dr.ir. GM (Gerard) Verschoor

Assistant professor

GERARD VERSCHOOR is Assistant Professor in the Sociology and Anthropology of Change at Wageningen University and works at the intersections of political ontology, actor-network, and Indigenous perspectivism. His publications have worked through empirical case studies in a range of areas including agricultural intervention, land-use patterns, territoriality, food networks, extractive resources, local knowledge, genetically modified corn, and drink (mezcal). His current research examines how socio-ecological conflicts are driven by ontological projects, and how one can imagine/find common ground between opposing ontological frameworks in situations that require some form of 'pluriversal governance'.
