The Residential College at the University of Michigan, in partnership with the Campus Farm at Matthaei Botanical Gardens, The Sustainable Food Systems Initiative, The department of Anthropology, The Sustainable Food Program, Michigan Dining, The Program in the Environment, The Wallace House, The Environmental Law & Policy Program, and The School for Environment and Sustainability are proud to announce: The Community of Food, Society & Justice Conference, Friday, October 18, 2019.
This conference has been planned because the ways that we meet the nutritional needs of all our communities, while also protecting the planet, promoting healthy lives, and ensuring food justice are among the greatest challenges facing our Nation and the world today. How to address these challenges and feed a hungry population raise transformative issues for communities and academics committed to sustainability and food justice throughout the world.
The Community of Food, Society & Justice Conference will engage students, faculty, staff, farmers, and the community in rigorous dialogue around these challenges. The conference will be structured around a foundation of interdisciplinary scholarship that agrees that recognizing structural relations of power are necessary in order to confront race, class, and gender privileges on these issues and others.
