Patricia Allen Gives Keynote at International Conference

Dr. Patricia Allen, chair of the food systems and society department, will be the keynote speaker at the Canadian Association for Food Studies Conference in Victoria, B.C. in June 2013.

The topic of her keynote is: Dancing with (not around) the Elephants in the Room: Building sustainable and equitable food systems for all.

The 2013 CAFS conference theme, At the Edge: Exploring the Boundaries of Food Studies, involves the bridging of many disciplines, ideas, places and people. The theme encourages reflection on the realities of social inequality and how to aim for greater inclusivity by bringing more marginalized voices to the center of food studies.

The Canadian Association for Food Studies was founded by academics and professionals from governmental and community organizations interested in promoting interdisciplinary scholarship in the broad area of food systems: food policy, production, distribution and consumption.
