March 2022 | The Grain Problem — Russian Agriculture and the Impact of War
This month, we spoke to Susanne Wengle, a professor at Notre Dame who researches post-Soviet political and economic transformation in Russia. Her second book is Black Earth, White Bread; a Technopolitical History of Russian Agriculture and Food. We were eager to hear her perspective on the history of agriculture in Russia and Ukraine and the current war’s ripple effects on food systems around the world.
Wengle’s book, Black Earth, White Bread; a Technopolitical History of Russian Agriculture and Food is available here.
