AALS CFP: Race and Racism in Food and Agriculture

Call for Papers

AALS Section on Agricultural and Food Law

(Co-sponsored by the Sections on Minority Groups and Environmental Law)

Food and agriculture play important roles in maintaining systemic racial oppression. From the dispossession of Black and Latinx farmers to migrant workers’ rights to food-related health disparities, there are multiple opportunities for legal and policy interventions into food and agriculture that would lead to greater food sovereignty, food justice, and racial equality. This panel explores several topics at the intersection of critical race theory and food and agricultural law and policy.

Up to 2 papers will be selected for presentation on Thursday January 2nd from 3:30pm-5:15pm. Please submit an abstract of 250-500 words by Monday August 19 to Andrea Freeman at [email protected]. Executive board members will review the papers and notify selected presenters by the first week of September. Panelists must pay for their own travel. Please direct any questions to Andrea Freeman.
