Through the process of Amy doing her dissertation fieldwork, analysis and writing, a clearer angle on "environment and society" has emerged. Teller thinks question of how environmental initiatives can and do expand to become vehicles for social and political transformation is central to this dissertation. Though the Brazilian environmental/agro-ecological organizations and organizers that the dissertation research focuses on seek to reach certain environmental outcomes with farmers, their practices--and the existing social and natural conditions in the region--have made this work into a mechanism for social change.
