New this Fall:Ethics and the Food System
Ethics and the Food System is about what its title suggests it's about: ethical issues that arise from our food system. We'll focus on three: the ethics of farmworker treatment, the ethics of organic production methods, and the ethics of hunger relief. Readings will include work by Estabrook, Guthman, Pachirat, Schlosser, and a bunch of philosophers. Lectures and discussion will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Lab sessions--including interviews, farm labor, movie watching, cooking, and food distributing--will take place on Wednesdays. The course will be co-taught by Amy Trubek (NFS) and Tyler Doggett (Philosophy).
