You are invited to attend a Carleton University Community Event
Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of the Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs.
The event takes place monthly, September through April.
Globalization and Food Sovereignty
About the Book: In recent years, food sovereignty has emerged as a way of contesting corporate control of agricultural markets in pursuit of a more democratic, decentralized food system. The concept unites individuals, communities, civil society organizations, and even states in opposition to globalizing food regimes. This collection examines expressions of food sovereignty ranging from the direct action tactics of La Vía Campesina in Brazil to the consumer activism of the Slow Food movement.
About the Editors: Peter Andrée is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Carleton University. Marie-Josée Massicotte, Associate Professor of Political Studies at the University of Ottawa, will also be speaking.
About the Panel: In addition to the two editors, this event will feature commentary from speakers visiting
Ottawa to participate in a symposium on Social and Informal Economies of Food.
This event is part of the Ottawa International Writer’s Festival.
