Susannah Chapman

I am Dr Susannah Chapman, a Research Fellow at The University of Queensland.

As an environmental and legal anthropologist, my research explores the intersection of law, science, and society, with a particular focus on transformations in human-plant relations, intellectual property, and food and seed regulation since the early twentieth century.

Using ethnographic and archival methods, my work asks questions about the coloniality, biopolitics, and translational practices of contemporary efforts to regulate plant reproductive material and crop diversity in the United States, The Gambia and Australia. I was awarded my PhD in Anthropology from the University of Georgia. I had previously worked at the University of Georgia, St. Mary’s College of Maryland, and the University of The Gambia.
