Campbell first joined Amizade as a volunteer in Santarém Brazil, while studying anthropology as an undergraduate at Davidson College. He was so deeply affected by the people and landscapes of the Amazon region that he returned to live and conduct long term research in the area. While completing his PhD at the University of California-Santa Cruz, Campbell returned to Santarém to study colonization, environmental politics, and social inequalities in Amazonia, one of Brazil’s most rapidly changing regions. Now a professor of anthropology at Roger Williams University, he continues to conduct research in Brazil and throughout Latin America. An advocate for global service learning, Campbell regularly teaches courses in conjunction with Amizade’s community partners in Brazil for U.S-based students. He hopes to continue to develop two-way exchange programs to facilitate learning opportunities for Latin American students as part of Amizade’s fair trade learning initiatives.
