Dr. Dorceta E. Taylor, “Food Access, Social Inequality, and Urban Environmental Sustainability”

Join us in welcoming Dr. Dorceta E. Taylor, the James E. Crawfoot Collegiate Professor of Environmental Justice & Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion of the University of Michigan.

Taylor will be giving a talk entitled “Food Access, Social Inequality, and Urban Environmental Sustainability”, which will examine the theoretical framing of food insecurity and the assumptions made by studies of food access. It will examine the shortcomings and gaps in the conceptualization of studies and challenges that exist in studying food access. Taylor will use case studies from Michigan to illustrate the complexities of the urban food landscapes and suggest approaches to studying these more systematically.

A light lunch will be provided.

Co-sponsored by the Duke Race Workshop, the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke Superfund Research Center, Duke Law School, the Department of African and African American Studies, the Franklin Humanities Center, the Department of Sociology, and the Duke Human Rights Center@FHI.
