I’m a cultural and environmental anthropologist with research and teaching interests in conservation, development, (eco)tourism, globalization, climate change, political ecology, and resistance and social movements. Currently, I live in Costa Rica, where I teach in the Department of Environment and Development at the United Nations-mandated University for Peace in Ciudad Colon (just west of the capital San Jose). This site provides an introduction to my work as well as links to recent writings and areas of interest. Thanks for stopping by! Please leave a comment or email me at rfletcher@upeace.org if you would like to get in contact.
