Plantationocene Seminar Futures of Food Justice Webinar
The "Future of Food Justice" webinar is the last segment of the 18-month Sawyer Seminar, "Interrogating the Plantationocene." The closing virtual event of the seminar series aims to spark dialogue between national and international activists, scholars, and the broader public. The Sawyer Seminar envisions it as an opportunity to expand and deepen a growing conversation around the relationship between food justice and social justice, with a particular focus on the past and present effects of racism and colonialism on global food systems. This virtual event will offer an opportunity to think creatively and collectively about concrete actions currently underway to create more just, equitable, and sustainable food systems. We will feature short video presentations by Malik Yakini (Detroit Black Community Food Security Network), Ashlesha Khadse (La Via Campesina South Asia), and students working on a COVID Mutual Aid Garden project in Eagle Heights here in Madison. These will be followed by commentary from Nan Enstad, Monica White, and Sophie Sapp Moore, scholars of food and environmental justice. The remainder of the time will be devoted to a facilitated Q&A and group discussion.
