About the Event
- Date and time: Wednesday, Oct. 4:30 pm. EDT
- Sponsor and hosts: UCSC Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems (CASFS); Stacy Philpott, Tim Galarneau (Food Systems Education & Research Program Specialist) and Joji Muramoto (UC Cooperative Extension Specialist in Organic Production Systems).
- Confirmed Speakers: Ana Elisa Pérez-Quintero (La Colmena Cimmarona, Vieques, Puerto Rico), Charles Francis (U. of Nebraska), Julie Grossman (U. of Minnesota), John Vandermeer (U. of Michigan), Ernesto Mendez (U. of Vermont), Aidee Guzman (UC Berkeley)
- Topic / Talks: We are asking each speaker to give a 5 minute “lightening talk” on their interpretation of the evolution of agroecology as a practice, a research discipline, and a social movement. What does agroecology mean to you? How is it practiced? Who are the holders / creators of agroecological knowledge? What are the exciting questions or recent advances in agroecology research?
- Audience: This event will be part of the CASFS Harvest Festival, an annual event that typically attracts many UCSC students and members of our community. We will advertise the event to students in our B.A. in Agroecology, B.A. in Environmental Studies, and Ph.D. in Environmental Studies, UCSC faculty and other students who do work in agroecology, food studies, environmental justice, and will also send info to the CASFS listserv (alumni of our apprenticeship program, donors, community members). We will certainly post notifications to social media and will hope to attract a wide audience. Feel free to share the information with your own students and networks.
