André Magnan

André Magnan is Associate Professor of Sociology and Social Studies at the University of Regina. His research and teaching interests include the sociology of agri-food systems, globalization and development, and sociological theory. Dr. Magnan has two principal areas of research. First, he has studied the financialization of agrifood systems, with a focus on changing patterns of farmland ownership and control. Here Dr. Magnan has documented how financial investors of different stripes are buying prairie farmland on a large scale. Along with Annette Desmarais, he conducted a multi-year study funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council aiming to understand how investor activity and farmland ownership concentration are affecting family farmers, rural communities, and the agricultural industry in the Canadian prairie provinces.
