This graduate seminar examines the complex landscape around food and how the different actors in food politics, with varying and often conflicting beliefs and intentions, navigate their influence on the decisions and policies around the control of food production, distribution and access. We will analyze the subject through discussion and critical reflection of historical events and the current debates around food, agricultural systems and human rights in a global context, with an emphasis on social movements aimed at food justice and food security locally and in the United States. The goal of this course is to create a foundation of knowledge to support further academic work and civic engagement in the food sovereignty movement.
