How do your choices of what you eat and buy affect the lives and deaths of the animals, humans, insects, and the environment around you? How are people’s ethical and food choices framed by society and media? Jenny Brown’s work and presentations challenge students and groups to take a closer look at our food system and the uncomfortable truths behind it. No matter our dietary choices, thinking about what is at stake with eating animals allows us to critically examine our traditions, our culture(s), and the relationship between us and the world. RSVP REQUIRED.
Please join us for an Ethics for Breakfast event with food geographer and Ostrom Workshop Postdoctoral fellow Dr. Angela Babb. In what way do our food choices affect other people? In what ways do our eating habits affect farmers and communities where foods are grown? What is an ethical diet? What are college students and universities across the U.S. doing to promote more ethical food systems? RSVP REQUIRED.
Are you stressed about finals? That one last paper or presentation? You can relieve your stress by finger painting! Stay the whole time or come and go as you please. Materials and light refreshments will be provided.
