The Ph.D. Program in Anthropology invites you to attend our Spring 2021 Colloquium series. 

Food Security, Right to Food, Food Sovereignty
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed and accelerated longstanding problems in the global food system. Food workers are being forced to risk their lives to maintain ecologically destructive agricultural practices and fragile supply chains, exposing the racism and exploitation at the heart of our current food system. Millions are out of work. Hunger and food insecurity are on the rise. Farmers have had to destroy massive quantities of vegetables and milk and to euthanize millions of animals. This panel will explore these intersecting, on-going challenges and the politics of hunger and rights in the context of the pandemic.
