International Conference,
Food Justice: Interdisciplinary Perspectives

April 4-6 2013

This conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to explore issues of food justice in historical context as well as in terms of contemporary policy debates. Conference sessions will address themes of food and war, food aid and humanitarianism, moral and ethical issues in defining hunger and famine, the tensions between local and global food systems, and alternative urban food movements (specifically in Chicago). Each panel will focus on pre-circulated papers and will feature a commentator.
