GEOG 534 - Geographies of Food - Winter 2020

Explores geographies of food on different scales -- from the global to the local -- with an emphasis on links between urban and rural contexts. By applying diverse perspectives (ecology, economy, equity, culture, policy, politics, gender, justice etc.) and normative concepts such as food sovereignty, we learn about the current globalized industrial agri-food regime as well as alternative and sustainable food systems.
