Conferences

299 tmc

We have created forums to connect a community of researchers and practitioners in this arena through conferences once every two years that bring together researchers, educators, and practitioners from a variety of disciplines. We have created outlets for publication of research in this nascent area through a book and a special issue of a journal. We also sponsor campus visits by researchers and practitioners in this arena.

The Subsistence Marketplaces Conference has been held biannually since 2006.
