Session 1 - 'Modern Hungers'

Session 2 - 'Food Aid and Humanitarianism'

Session 3 - 'Food and War'

This conference brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to explore issues of food justice in historical context as well as in terms of contemporary policy debates. Conference sessions will address themes of food and war, food aid and humanitarianism, moral and ethical issues in defining hunger and famine, the tensions between local and global food systems, and alternative urban food movements (specifically in Chicago). The conference is intended to foster in-depth discussion. To that end, conference papers will be pre-circulated among participants as well as a limited number of public guests.
