Food and Climate Change: A Conversation with Michael Pollan hosted by Juliet Schor
Thursday, November 2, 7:00 PM
Gasson Hall, 100

For the past twenty years, Michael Pollan has been writing books and articles about the places where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture. He is the author of numerous bestsellers including In Defense of Food, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and The Botany of Desire. In 2003, Pollan was appointed the John S. and James L. Knight Professor of Journalism at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, and the director of the Knight Program in Science and Environmental Journalism. In addition to teaching, he lectures widely on food, agriculture, and gardening.

Michael Pollan will be interviewed by Boston College’s Juliet Schor, professor of Sociology, whose research focuses on work, consumption, and sustainability. Her interests include the sharing economy, climate change, and alternative food provisioning.
