Bio/Research

Tony Winson (M.A., Ph.D., University of Toronto) taught at Saint Mary's University and the University of Western Ontario before joining the University of Guelph. He has been writing on agriculture, food and rural development issues related to Canada and the Third World for more than twenty years. He is the author of Coffee and Democracy in Modern Costa Rica (Macmillan, 1989), The Intimate Commodity (Garamond, 1993) and Contingent Work, Disrupted Lives: Labour and Community in the New Rural Economy (U. of Toronto Press, 2002, co-author Belinda Leach). This latest book won the John Porter prize of the Canadian Sociology Association for 2003, and examines economic restructuring, work, and the factors underlying sustainability in small manufacturing-dependent rural communities in several regions of Ontario. Currently, he is extending his earlier interests in the sociology of food and agribusiness, with particular emphasis on the political economic determinants of diet and nutrition.
