From Flint to the Rio Grande: water insecurity in the United States.

Wendy Jepson is a broadly trained geographer interested in human-environmental interaction. Prof Jepson’s current theoretical interests address political ecology, environmental governance and politics, critical legal geography, technology-society interaction, and communities with particular focus on environmental justice and water resources in the United States. Her current research examines the complex political, economic and social production of environmental inequities in low-income rural and peri-urban Mexican-American neighborhoods (colonias) in the Lower Rio Grande Valley along the Texas-Mexico border.
