Adrian Kane

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.
