Description générale

L'Atelier Amérique du Nord (IEP-Lyon2-ENS), dans le cadre de son cycle de conférences 2014-2015, accueillera Daniel J. Philippon (Univ. Minnesota) pour une conférence intitulée
"Spirit of the Soil: The Agrarian Roots of Contemporary Food Politics"

Everywhere you go in the U.S. these days, from the White House to your neighbor's house, people are talking about food. These conversations did not emerge out of nowhere, however, but are the result of a specific set of discourses about agriculture, food production, and gastronomy that have been circulating for decades. This talk will examine one such discourse--the agrarian critique of industrialism--that has had an outsized influence on contemporary food politics in the U.S.
