Symposium on American Food Resilience

Part 1 of the Symposium on American Food Resilience (13 articles) has now been published in the September issue of the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences (  Part 2 (14 articles) will be in the December issue.

The entire collection is exciting in the diversity of its coverage, as experts on various aspects of the food system draw upon their disparate perspectives to throw light on a single high-stakes issue – the security of our food supply. A major goal of the Symposium is to frame this theme in a way that points to what scientists, teachers, and other professionals can do through research, education, community action, or other means to make the food system more resilient.

The Symposium on American Food Resilience is part of an ongoing process that began with presentations by an informal working group at the AESS annual conference two years ago (  Please let me know if you’re interested in participating in the working group as it moves forward.
