AGST Module 1 Special Lecture Series : “Social Movements and the U.S. Agri-Food System” (2017.6.26- 6.28)

  • Environmental Policy & Rural Development Studies

  • AGST Module 1 (Environmental Policy & Rural Development Studies) will hold an intensive lecture course by Prof. Patrick Mooney (University of Kentucky), entitled “Social Movements and the U.S. Agri-Food System” from 26th to 28th June, 2017. The course will be centered around introducing historical mobilizations oriented toward the food and agricultural systems in the U.S. from a broad social movements perspective. We expect that this will provide some interesting insights for Japanese students into aspects of American history that might not be familiar. The course will address the history of agrarian mobilizations in the U.S. with a view to a sociological recognition of continuities between episodes of mobilization that end to elude economic and historical accounts.
