Lecture: Staying Home for Dinner: Ruminations on Local Foods in a Cosmopolitan Society

The focus of ethical decision-making should fall on building communities because the importance of any choice we make lies in the relationships that give our choices context. Food is an especially rich intersection of relations that provides many opportunities to connect and imagine more democratic communities. Recognizing these opportunities leads us to see ourselves not as food consumers but as food citizens who seek to enact and transform our relations through not only our purchasing and eating choices but also through our collective work in organizations that promote healthy, just, fair, safe, and delicious food systems for all people.  This lecture is by Lisa Heldke, Professor of Philosophy at Gustavus Adolphus College.

 Free and open to the public, registration recommended.  Visit www.case.edu/humanities for more information or to register for the event.
