After Angélica Márquez-Osuna completed her B.A. in Communication Studies, she worked as a journalist and head newspaper editor. In 2012 when she received her M.A. in Social Anthropology, she started working in different interdisciplinary projects with historians and anthropologists in Mexico. She is mainly interested in knowledge production in agriculture, anthropology, environmental history and history of development. Her current research project is focused on the changes in bee-keeping practices from a traditional method to a modern scientific technique, and under a model based on the industrialization of the agrarian context. She aims to examine the exchange of bee-keeping knowledge and honey production in the twentieth century between Havana, Florida, and the Yucatan Peninsula.
