GPS 4120 - Food Security & Sovereignty


Cross-Listed As: GPS-6120

This research seminar will explore the politics of food from a systemic framework through the policies of food security and contemporary responses by social movements advocating food sovereignty. We will begin the course by examining hunger nationally and internationally. Our readings will explore such issues as the complicity in how food stamp and welfare policies are created to intra-household food distribution to the purposeful creation of famine for political and even genocidal ends. An underlying assumption of this seminar is that politics, very simply, affect hunger. Students will explore and research particular food policies that bring light to the distinct political frameworks of food security and food sovereignty.
