Jim Veteto
Dr. Veteto holds a Ph.D. in ecological/environmental anthropology from the University of Georgia and a M.A. from Appalachian State University in Appalachian Studies and Sustainable Development.  He has recently been named the director of The Southern Seed Legacy project and is also the Director of The Laboratory of Environmental Anthropology at UNT.  His research focuses on the ethnoecology and sustainability of traditional food systems in the southern Appalachia and Ozark mountains, with particular focus on heirloom seeds and culinary traditions, and farmer motivations for continuing to grow landrace varieties. He connects food traditions to the larger sociopolitical and agroecological contexts which sustain them and is co-editor of the book, “The Slaw and the Slow Cooked: An Anthropology of Mid-South Barbecue” forthcoming from Vanderbilt University Press.  Jim also conducts research on utopian sustainability movements and is co-editor of the forthcoming book, “Environmental Anthropology Engaging Ecotopia: Bioregionalism, Permaculture, and Ecovillage Design for a Sustainable Future,” under contract with Berghahn Books.  Jim has worked as a research fellow with The Renewing America’s Food Traditions program of Slow Food USA, and has worked extensively with the Center for Cherokee Plants.  He has received research funding from The National Science Foundation, Southeastern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education, The Cherokee Preservation Foundation/Renewing Traditional Cherokee Artisan Resources and Annie’s Naturals, Inc. In his spare time, Jim likes to engage in heirloom gardening, permaculture design, and wildcrafting of native and naturalized plants.
