The Gustavus Möbius Initiative is featuring a short video on the interdisciplinary research of Geography professor Dr. Anna Versluis, Anthropology professor Dr. Annika Ericksen, and Gustavus students on “The Changing Agricultural Landscape of Southern Minnesota: Farmers’ Perspectives.”

Dr. Greg Kastor, Professor of History and Hanson-Peterson Chair of Liberal Studies, calls the research project “an interesting, important, timely, and illuminating study at a time when farmers and all of us face quite enormous challenges of food production in the context of fundamental and accelerating changes to the agricultural sector and the climate itself.”
