I am drawn to the centrality of food in both daily living
and human development. In fact, studying the domestic and global food systems has
become a passion of mine. In my own learning, I have come to conceptualize food as a nexus of the
world’s forces, systems, and histories that both embody inequalities of the
past and perpetuate those injustices today: Food connects to hunger,
inequality, oppression, agriculture, sustainability, power, violence, political
economy AND the hopeful possibilities for future societies.
