RFLA 100C 07 and 08 - Food Democracy (CRNs 10553/10752)


An introduction to the global food system and its failings. Through big picture discussions and case studies from the global north and south, students study food cultures and nutrition, their links to global health in both developing and developed countries, global agri-business and food trade, land ownership, land grabbing and other factors affecting food security and food sovereignty, and broader, but connected issues, such as climate change, conflict and hunger, and forced migration. Students will learn about food activism and food justice movements challenging our unjust and unsustainable global food system. Satisfies ECMP.
