As an international centre of research excellence, the CCRI seminar series aims to encourage and welcome speakers from a broad range of academic, policy and stakeholder backgrounds. The series, which has become an integral component of CCRI, is open to all, and is a flexible vehicle for the dissemination of research and discussion of policy and practice in a broad range of topics such as agriculture, society, food and environmental issues. It offers the individual an opportunity to present their work in a friendly setting, amongst academics that have a genuine passion and interest in the furthering of knowledge.

We often have international speakers that complement the internal and national academics that regularly present research activities which all contribute to knowledge transfer within the region and amongst our extensive networks.

For more information regarding this series, please email

All seminars begin at 12.15 and take place at the University of Gloucestershire Francis Close Hall Campus, Cheltenham, unless otherwise noted.

All seminars are free to attend. Follow this link to find travel instructions to FCH campus.

The social processes behind agroecological scaling in the Maya-Achi territory of Guatemala

19/09/2019 at 12:15 - 13:15

Natahan Einbinder is a fourth year PhD candidate at the Colegio de la Frontera Sur, in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Mexico. Nathan joined the CCRI as a visiting researcher in August 2019 for three months. His research looks at agroecological scaling (adoption, maintenance, and extension processes) and the importance of local culture in the Maya Achí territory of Guatemala.

His most recent fieldwork related to soil management, focusing on traditional but also introduced practices and therefore has numerous parrallels with the work of several researchers within CCRI.

Nathan will present some of the findings from his PhD at this seminar at 12:15pm, on September 19th, Francis Close Hall campus – Room HC105.
