Food Justice, Hunger and the City in Geography Compass

February 27, 2013 Comments off

Here is a post on a little review essay I co-authored last year with colleagues Hilda Kurtz and Amy Trauger entitled Food Justice, Hunger and the City in Geography Compass:

Abstract
We are amidst a long-overdue increase of interest in issues related food, cities and inequality
within geography. While there has certainly been significant scholarship done on the issue, this
area seems to be on the verge of defining many other sub-disciplinary trajectories as opposed to
the opposite which has historically been the case. In this short review essay, we hope to signal the
utility of the concepts of community food security, food sovereignty and urban agriculture for
conceptually linking food, justice, and cities.
