Food For Thought: A blog about Food, Bikes, Politics, Environmentalism, and the Economy
Welcome to my webpage: I am a food system scholar and author of The Politics of the Pantry: Stories, Food and Social Change. I am also a small scale farmer, bicycle enthusiast and the Community Food Network Manager with the Halton Food Council, where I hope to be part of a vibrant, resilient food systems renaissance in the region. in the Sustainable Futures Program at McMaster University and run a unique farm that focus on Urban Homesteading and teaching people how to reconnect with their food.
Most of my research falls under the following headings
- Sustainable Food Production, especially local and organic food systems
- Political Ecology: I am especially interested in the link between economic and ecological debt
- Utopian and Dystopian thinking, especially as it relates to imagining and practicing sustainable alternatives to capitalism
- Cultural Studies: consumerism, popular culture, literature and film
This blog will share all my passions, whether that involves making guanciale, long distance cycling, or critical theory.
