Have you ever questioned the local tomatoes grown by migrant labour / the presence of campus food banks / or the demographics of food service workers? UBC students, if you’re still looking for a course to complete your time table, read on!
Two LFS students are co-leading a student-directed seminar on food justice in September 2019 to collectively unpack these questions. The seminar will be a peer-to-peer learning environment where you will explore food systems as a platform for engaging in social justice. There will be critical discussions, collaborative projects, and lots of snacking.
If you are interested in taking this seminar,
- Check if you are available on Tuesdays from 4:00 – 7:00pm from September to December 2019.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with a letter of intent containing:
- a) experience with food systems (either academic, work or any other relevant experience)
- b) what your understanding of food justice is
- c) what skills, perspectives, and experiences you will bring to an active learning environment required in a student-directed seminar.
- Wait for confirmation regarding your enrolment, and the instructors will register you in the course on the SSC.
