Integrated Plant Sciences, PhD student
Sam Bosco is a PhD student in the School of Integrated Plant Sciences’ Horticulture section. His dissertation research examines the significance of temperate edible nut trees in both Haudenosaunee and settler/NYS foodscapes. Applying archival, social scientific, and horticultural methods, this community-based and participatory research traces the role of nuts in both Haudenosaunee food sovereignty and as an important, but overlooked, component of climate smart agriculture. This project explores decolonial theory and praxis in agriculture research and extension.
