Join the Sociology and Anthropology department for the next research series, Friday, February 25, at noon where Dr. Gina Hunter and Dr. Noha Shawki will discuss the slow food movement and what it is. Slow Food is about a world where all food is good to eat, good for those who grow it, and good for the planet. Together, Hunter and Shawki will seek to answer the question of how to handle solidarity among such diverse participants within this international movement. How can this diversity be managed in line with its goals for the greatest political impact?

Dr. Noha Shawki is a professor of political science with a focused interest in international social movements and activism. She is also the co-director of the Center for a Sustainable Water Future. Dr. Gina Hunter is an associate professor of anthropology who is passionate about food studies and sustainable food alternatives. She is the director of the Office of Undergraduate Research and co-Director of the Food Studies Minor program at Illinois State University.

The discussion will be presented in hybrid format from Schroeder Hall 201. To view online, follow the Zoom link.
