Radical Food Geographies: Connecting Knowledges, Cultivating Practices, (re)Imagining Governance

Mini Conference: Radical Food Geographies: Connecting Knowledges, Cultivating Practices, (re)Imagining Governance

We are pleased to announce a day-long workshop on April 2, 2019 that will engage geographers and community-based food activists in strategizing how academics, policy makers, NGOs, and activists can work collaboratively to advance food justice and food sovereignty.

The workshop will take place in Washington, D.C. surrounding a series of connected conference sessions and panel discussions at the 2019 American Association of Geographers (AAG) annual meetings. Together, the aim of these events is to strengthen working relationships between food justice and food sovereignty movements and critical geographers, while providing a forum for practical, grassroots, policy change-oriented work.

The events are organized by a collaborative of scholars, practitioners, and community- based activists in the U.S., Canada, and the UK, and partially supported through a grant from the Institute for Human Geography Inc. and through AAG conference enrichment funds.
