I am an associate professor of Geography at the University of Washington in Seattle. I research questions of race, nature and transnational migrations. My book, Green Wars: Conservation and Decolonization in Guatemala's Maya Forest , was published in 2017 by the University of California Press.
I teach classes including: Race, Nature & Power (Autumn 2019); Environmental Justice (Autumn 2019); and a co-facilitated seminar on Indigenous Methodologies (work in progress!). If you're a UW student, you can sign up for an appointment via http://bit.ly/ybarra-cal. If you are applying to our geography graduate program (MA/PhD), please look over my teaching & advising page and write me a brief email.
You can also see what I'm reading at goodreads.
