Theresa Pendergrast

Ph.D. Student

Tess' MS project focused on social, economic, political, and institutional changes resulting from water-intensive agricultural development in rural New Zealand. Her previous research has explored the race and class dimensions of environmental crises and the consequences economic development initiatives have for local democracy. Tess' dissertation work examines ways the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) engages with environmental justice (EJ) and how different groups shape EJ action.
