There will be few new posts over the next three weeks. I will be in Seattle from August 11 until August 16 for a bit of R&R and an NBER event on food price volatility.
I will then be in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, from August 18 until August 26 for the triennial conference of the International Association of Agricultural Economists, where I will be presenting my work on food prices and social unrest.
I will be back at Duke on August 28 to teach the first of my two classes for the upcoming semester, but then I will be going to the annual meeting of the American Political Science Association in New Orleans from August 29 until September 2, to take part in a panel titled “New Directions in Environmental Security.”
If you happen to be in any of those places at the same time and would like to meet for coffee or drinks, email me.
