Sympsium: Exploring Food Sovereignty and Cultural Resilience in Cuba - A Study Abroad Course Experience
You are invited to a public symposium organized and hosted by students in ALCE 4984/5984, Cuba: Food Sovereignty, Culture, and Resilience.
This culminating course event will include an engaging program of presentations and video performances, along with an interactive poster session led by a talented group of undergraduate and graduate students who studied and traveled to Cuba this spring as a study aboard course.
Employing a critical and interdisciplinary lens, students focused on the concepts, experiences, and practices of food sovereignty and community resilience as they relate to Cuban politics, culture, and identity. Topics included, but were not limited to, social movement history in Cuba; food security, land rights and distribution; resilience and sustainability; gender and racial equity; and community mobilization for a just food system.
Please joins us in the spirit of being in community with each other and to learn about the complexities and possibilities of Cuban food sovereignty and cultural resilience.
Refreshments will be provided.
