Just Food? Forum on Land Use, Rights, and Ecology

March 25, 2016 - March 26, 2016

March 25th and 26th, 2016
Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA

A collaboration of the Harvard Food Law Society and Food Literacy Project

REGISTER NOW (Early bird rates through February 25th.)

This year’s Just Food? conference will examine the relationship between people and land, primarily through agriculture and food. Conference events will explore the legal, moral, policy, health, historic and environmental aspects of our domestic and international food system, with a focus on the intersection of land and justice. The conference will bring together scholars, farmers, activists, practitioners, and other authorities to discuss the growing concerns about who has access to land, how agriculture changes land, and who is marginalized or dispossessed by our current system. Our goal is to educate attendees, empower them to make changes, and engage them in a larger dialogue about food.

Keynotes speakers include:

Smita Narula on Land Rights.

Jo Guldi on Historical Legacies of Land: the Oppressed and Dispossessed.

Panels topics will include:

  • Indigenous Land Rights
  • Land Access, Tenure and Transition
  • International Land Struggles
  • Ecological Impacts of Modern Agriculture
  • And more!
