Lecture and Discussion with Food Justice Activist and Author Mark Winne: The Myth of Food Democracy

Caitlin Aylward ’13 writes in about the food justice:

Food justice activist and author Mark Winne is returning to Wesleyan this Thursday to give a talk entitled “The Myth of Food Democracy: Ethics, Choice and the Tyranny of the Marketplace.”

The event will take place in the Woodhead Lounge (Exley) on Thursday October 11th from 4:15-5:30 PM with a reception to follow featuring Udupi’s Indian food.

In light of the upcoming general election, Mark Winne will address the links between food justice and the national election, as well as the market barriers that impede genuine democracy. Learn more about the societal consequences of recent food-related actions, votes, and policies, and discuss effective food policy strategies from cities across the world.

WesFRESH Speaker Series

Caitlin C. Aylward ’13 writes in about WesFRESH’s fresh new speaker series:

This panel discussion on our current food system is a part of the WesFRESH speaker series in conjunction with Farm Hoe and sponsored by the COE.

This will be a discussion about the issues in our current food system, and in light of the upcoming farm bill, the barriers and possible solutions for rectifying these issues. I expect this panel to be a spontaneous panel discussion moderated by our faculty advisor, Prof. Fullilove, with plenty of time for student questions.
