Research

On Infertile Ground
Population Control and Women's Rights in the Era of Climate Change

Sasser's first book project, On Infertile Ground (forthcoming in 2018 from NYU Press), explores how a network of international development actors is reframing the way we think about population growth in the context of climate change—and how we think about social justice too. In exploring these questions, the project engages the roles of these questions through analyses of race and gender, political economy, and the politics of knowledge production. Sasser's newest project investigates improved cookstove programs that target women for alternative cooking and fuel use interventions through a neoliberal approach to empowerment.
