Just Food? Forum on Land Use, Rights and Ecology
A collaboration of the Harvard Food Law Society and Food Literacy ProjectHarvard Law School, Cambridge, MA
Early bird rates through February 25th.
This year's Just Food? conference will examine the relationship between people and land, primarily through agriculture and food. We will explore the legal, moral, policy, health, historic and environmental aspects of our domestic and international food system, with a focus on the intersection of land and justice. The conference will bring together scholars, farmers, activists, practitioners, and other authorities to discuss the growing concerns about who has access to land, how agriculture changes land, and who is marginalized or dispossessed by our current system. Our goal is to educate attendees, empower them to make changes, and engage them in a larger dialogue about food.
Keynotes speakers include:Smita Narula on Land Rights.Jo Guldi on Historical Legacies of Land: the Oppressed and Dispossessed.
Panels topics will include:Indigenous Land RightsLand Access, Tenure and TransitionInternational Land StrugglesEcological Impacts of Modern AgricultureAnd more!
