About

Eve Bratman is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth & Environment at Franklin & Marshall College.

I am a political ecologist with interdisciplinary training in international relations. My research centrally concerns how sustainable development is envisioned and carried into politics. I am the author of Governing the Rainforest: Sustainable Development in the Brazilian Amazon (Oxford University Press, 2019). The book is based on ten years of research in the Brazilian Amazon, and offers a historical account of how lives and landscapes have been profoundly impacted by the sustainable development paradigm.

My research and teaching also focus on urban sustainability and prospects for climate justice, and the honeybee in relation to global environmental politics. I use postcolonial/decolonial theories, development critiques, and mixed social science methods in my research. I engage several of my classes in community-based research, and am also a member of the City of Lancaster Planning Commission.
