Institute for Advanced Study Presents

Exploring Food and Agriculture

Thursdays at Four
Dec 2015
About the Event

For the past eight years, Nicholas Jordan, Professor of Agronomy and Plant Genetics, UMN, and Valentine Cadieux, Director of the Environmental Studies Program at Hamline University, have worked together and with their respective communities of practice to integrate tools for communicative practice and systemic understanding—largely in relation to complex food-society-environment relationships. Cadieux’s current work concerns skill sharing and land trust and access issues, while Jordan’s centers on a pilot joint effort in urban agriculture with Afro-Eco, the Freshwater Society, Hope Community, and the Land Stewardship Project. This conversational presentation will explore the role of students and scholars in food and agriculture movement work!

This event is cosponsored by the IAS Agrifood Collaborative and the Institute on the Environment.
