It seems like a long way away, but here’s an advance heads-up about the second Tufts Food Systems Symposium, currently in the planning stages. This year’s theme is Unintended Consequences in the Food System: The Problem of “Solutions.”
Date: Friday, April 6, 2018, 10 am – 2 pm
Location: Breed Hall, Tufts University
Keynote speaker: Julie Guthman, social sciences professor at the University of California Santa Cruz and author of Agrarian Dreams: The Paradox of Organic Farming in California (2004), Weighing In: Obesity, Food Justice, and the Limits of Capitalism (2011), and (co-edited with Alison Alkon) The New Food Activism: Opposition, Cooperation, and Collective Action (2017). She is currently a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University, where she is completing a book manuscript on the innovations that both created the modern strawberry industry and made non-industrial strawberry production all but inviable.
