Karin Bugow is a research associate working on the project “The International History of Rural Development After 1945,” which is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation at Jacobs University Bremen.
Her current work is on her dissertation, which examines the role of multinational corporations in the Green Revolution of the 1960s and 1970s. By tracing corporate activities in the dissemination of Green Revolution technologies, she analyses the very roots of the growing impact of agribusiness corporations on global food production. Her research interests meet at the intersection of the history of development and modernisation, and the history of capitalism in the second half of the twentieth century. She holds a B.A. in Governance and Public Policy from the University of Passau and an M.A. in International Relations from Jacobs University.
