IUFI 2020-21 Seminar Series: Food and (anti-)Race(-ism)

The IU Food Institute proposes to dedicate its 2020-21 seminar to the topic of food and race. Seen locally, nationally and globally the intersection of race and food highlights important issues of racial inequity in areas that include land access, farming, food processing, and access to adequate and healthy foods. Renewed awareness regarding indigenous foodways around the world is also pointing the way to a more sustainable future. In the present context of rising nationalisms and a pandemic that impacts already disadvantaged racial groups more than others, these issues take on special urgency.
