The Geopolitics of Hunger and Global Food Production

February 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event
$10.00
Brittany Cook

We welcome Brittany Cook from Louisiana State University.

In a potential future without famine, what other frameworks should we use to address global hunger? What are other productive ways for thinking about food systems? This talk explores how racial capitalism highlights key problems in the relationship between food production, geopolitics, and development.

Reception and networking for this event will take place from 5 – 6pm.

Parking

The program will take place at the Auditorium of the Wisner-Botrall Applied Technology Center on the Grand Rapids Community College campus (151 Fountain Street. NE). Free parking is available in Parking Lot A on Ransom Ave NE between Lyon and Fountain (you’ll receive an exit ticket when you sign-in at the event).  Guests will walk across the walking bridge to enter the ATC and take one floor down to the auditorium.
