Instructor: Lesli Hoey
Concurrent food, energy, water, climate, and biodiversity crises, and a global rise in obesity amidst widespread hunger and undernutrition, have focused public attention on the deficiencies and complexities of the global food system. Yet, a diversity of emerging 'alternative' food systems demonstrates their potential to be nutritionally productive and socially and environmentally sound.
Transforming food systems will require coordinated efforts across disciplines and scales, drawing upon diverse academic and practical perspectives, and understanding how value systems shape food and agriculture. Linking theory and practice is essential, involving the full range of actors moving food from farm to fork.
This course offers a unique opportunity for students to gain an interdisciplinary introduction to the food system through a weekly lecture series bringing high-profile speakers to campus from policy, academia, and grassroots movements. Designed as an academic-community partnership, the course is led by a UM faculty member (Hoey) with a leader in food justice in Detroit (Hebron), along with the manager of the UM Sustainable Food Systems Initiative (Fink Shapiro). Students will develop competencies in food-systems sustainability, including systems thinking, community engagement, creativity, and analytical abilities.
Students will write regular reaction postings in response to the lectures and several short essay assignments over the term. These are essays based on the lectures and additional scholarship by the students.
The course may have 100-150 students (based on 2017 and 2018 enrollment). Students will also be offered extra credit opportunities by participating in Detroit-based events over the term in order to learn from perspectives and experiences of the Detroit community partners. Students will be evaluated based on attendance, participation, and writing assignments.
