Jeanne Lieberman

Doctoral Student


Jeanne is interested in the ways that seeds, scientific expertise, toxins, and different ways of narrating history and of articulating counter-hegemonic knowledges circulate across the Américas, especially between urban and rural spaces. She approaches her work as an anthropologist, filmmaker and educator as interconnected components of this process of inquiry. Before coming to the University of Pennsylvania she completed film projects working with farmers in Cauca, Colombia and Watsonville, California and worked in arts education and community-engaged research design on the South Side of Chicago.
