#ReadUrbanandPlanningWomen2014 entry #17: JoAnn Carmin

I’m sad this morning posting this, as today I am writing about the work of JoAnn Carmin, a professor at DUSP at MIT, who passed away recently after her second bout with cancer. JoAnn was a major scholar in environmental justice, and I admire her work tremendously. Her students thought very highly of her, and she will be greatly missed in the scholarly world. JoAnn’s work centered mostly on international and development perspectives on environmental justice. She has many papers, but I will refer us to her body of edited work and her own book contribution.
