Session Title: Sustainable Food Systems in Cross-Cultural Perspective
*Session Abstract: *This panel examines food systems in the context of
sustainable development programs. Drawing on ethnographic research from
across the world, papers will explore how farmers and families engage in
large and small-scale food cultivation, and the ways they believe this
aligns with the goals of sustainable development. Connecting with this
year?s conference theme continuity and change, papers will discuss the
practical value of anthropological perspectives on sustainable food
systems, and offer recommendations for how farmers and policy makers can
better work together to promote food systems that embody the economic,
environmental and social components of sustainable development.
*Panel Organizer:* Chelsea Wentworth (University of Pittsburgh)
