Published in JAFSCD: Framing the fight: Food, history, and meaning in the mess

I was invited by the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development to review Food Fights: How History Matters to Contemporary Food Debates, edited by Charles C. Ludington and Matthew Morse Booker. My review published this month discusses how a historical perspective on food systems reveals "tension and convergence, missed opportunities, best-laid plans, and unintended consequences." 

The takeaway: "By partaking in more nuanced debate framed and informed by history, readers may find themselves less inclined to accept an oversimplified version of our current food reality and instead embrace a more meaningful, messy one."

If you know of an institution, course, or discussion group where this work could contribute, let's connect.
