Food in a Just World – A Book Launch Event

Join the CBU community on Thursday, April 11, at On Paper Books (311 Charlotte St.) for the book launch event of Food in a Just World: Compassionate Eating in a Time of Climate Change.

Food in a Just World was written by Tracey Harris, an Associate Professor of Sociology, and Terry L. Gibbs, a Professor of International Politics over the course of three years. The book explores the violence, social breakdown and environmental consequences of our global system of food production, distribution and consumption. “While emphasizing the urgent need for change, the book points the way to building resilient communities and a more compassionate society,” says Tracey.

To bring the book to life, Tracey and Terry interviewed 28 advocates, activists, researchers, workers and policy makers who helped them explore the politics of food in the context of capitalist globalization and the climate crisis.

The official launch and celebration event kicks off at 6:30pm and all members of the community are invited to attend.
