Adrian Kane, a professor of Spanish in the Department of World Languages, recently presented his paper “The Disastrous Ecology of Narco-Trafficking in Jennifer Clement’s Prayers for the Stolen” at the Latin American Studies Association Congress in Barcelona, Spain.

In this paper, Kane analyzes the Mexican government’s use of herbicides — ostensibly targeting drug crops, but in reality released over mountain villages — as a form of slow violence against Mexican citizens and their ecosystems.
