Food Politics and Justice

Biodiversity conservation, impacts of agricultural policies, and rural development are only a few elements in the critical field of food politics and justice. Professor Garrett Graddy-Lovelace draws on her training as a critical geographer in her community-based participatory action research with grassroots groups on Farm Bill reforms. Her research also focuses on agricultural biodiversity conservation, agrarian cooperatives, and domestic and global impacts of US farm policies. She is writing a book on agrobiodiversity conservation politics and seed conservation.
