Event – Where does agroecology rely on a colonial nutrition discourse and how can we disrupt this in ways that advance health equity?

This online event will provide simultaneous Spanish translation. 

Join us for an Institute for Agroecology Power Up seminar with Lucy Aphramor from the Center for Agroecology, Water and Resilience. Coventry University.

April 5th 10am-1130am EST on Zoom

In this seminar, dietitian Lucy Aphramor will revisit public health nutrition messages to show how these embed an ableist, healthist, neoliberal ideology. Centering work by scholars that highlights anti-Blackness as co-constituted with anti-fatness, we will explore ways to surface and disrupt the deep logic of coloniality locked in place by public health nutrition to develop a liberatory nutrition narrative that aligns with agroecological transition.

Co-Presented by the UVM Institute for Agroecology and the UVM Food Systems Graduate Program.
