Food Literacy for All - Culinary Justice: Defining a Theory of Gastronomic Sovereignty
Food Literacy for All is an evening lecture series, featuring different guest speakers each week to address diverse challenges and opportunities of both domestic and global food systems. The course is designed to prioritize engaged scholarship that connects theory and practice. By bringing national and global leaders, we aim to ignite new conversations and deepen existing commitments to building more equitable, health-promoting, and ecologically sustainable food systems.
This community-academic partnership course will be co-led by Jennifer Blesh, agroecologist and Assistant Professor in the School of Natural Resources and Environment, Malik Yakini, Executive Director and a co-founder of the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network, and Lilly Fink Shapiro, Program Manager for the Sustainable Food Systems Initiative.
UM students can enroll in the course for credit and community members can attend the series for free. Food Literacy for All will take place Tuesday evenings during the winter semester of 2017. Lectures will be filmed and made available to the general public.
Watch livestream of the lecture starting at 6:30pm ET.
