Program Overview

Program Description:

Get an in-depth look at how communities in the US South are responding to global challenges of food insecurity, environmental health, and social justice through this hybrid program taught 30% online and 70% face-to-face on site in Georgia.

As the largest city in the southeast and a center of both civil rights activism and southern hospitality, Atlanta provides the ideal base to begin your study of US food systems. With access to the nation’s first land grant university (the University of Georgia in Athens), and excursions to agricultural heartlands in the southwest and coastal regions of Georgia, students will gain a comprehensive view of US agriculture. This includes learning both longstanding and innovative techniques in crop and livestock production, interrogating diverse conditions of labor, and collaborating on the practice of food justice with those working to cultivate progressive foodways. Students will study social and environmental spaces of the New South using foodways as a tool for understanding political and economic histories of the US.
