Food justice is a growing movement that has inspired both on-the-ground community projects and theoretical articulations across multiple disciplines. This workshop aims to help scholars and practitioners identify and address the challenges and opportunities in food justice, including issues surrounding food access, food sovereignty, agricultural and environmental ethics, and agricultural sustainability. The conference will span three days and include scholarly talks and visits to local environmental justice projects. Academic papers should be accessible to a public audience.

The workshop is intended as a transdisciplinary space to forge connections between theories and between theory and practice. Papers in disciplines such as philosophy, sociology, anthropology, geography, history, literary criticism, political ecology, religious studies, and the human dimensions of environmental sciences are all encouraged.

Please send any questions, to Ian Werkheiser  or Zach Piso
