Lecture: "Bet Your Bottom Dollar: Considering the Alternatives to the Alternative in a Changing Food World” Olin 103

Psyche Williams-Forson, Associate Professor of American Studies at the University of Maryland and author of Building Houses Out of Chicken Legs: Black Women, Food and Power, will deliver a lecture in conjunction with the college's Global Insight program.

Bet Your Bottom Dollar:
Expanding the Concept of Alternatives in a Changing Food World

In today's economy, where rapidly changing food options and movements are the order of the day, and where food access and food security are items of serious concern, it seems imperative that we not limit our thinking to "organic or conventional?" This talk explores "value stores" such as the Dollar Store, as sites that challenge how we define terms like "alternative" and "sustainable."
