Eating Your Environment (Combination public lecture series and  course)

Lecture Series is on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm in 120 Kane Hall beginning October 5, 2010.  The Program on the Environment will run a linked undergraduate course with the public lecture series, allowing students to discuss lecture topics in more detail with speakers.  Beth Wheat, founder of the UW Farm, will teach the linked undergraduate course.

From the field to the kitchen, from Seattle to the plains of Africa, we will follow food production from the dawn of the human species through to the present.  This series will bring public intellectuals and practitioners to campus to share their thoughts and experiences with the UW and Seattle community.  What they say will be new, interesting, and occasionally controversial, as we collectively explore the most personal and public of resources: food.
