Are you engaged in exciting food-related research, teaching, and publication at UNC? Do you have an idea for an outstanding food-related lecturer (scholars, journalists, documentarians, community activists, food entrepreneurs, artisans, practitioners) to bring to campus?
UNC-Chapel Hill’s Food for All (FFA) pan-university academic theme is sponsoring a multi-disciplinary food studies lecture series, and is seeking proposals from the university community. Micro-grants are available for speaker events with an expectation of cost-sharing between FFA and the co-sponsoring department, institute, or organization. Food for All is currently accepting proposals for speakers during the spring of 2017.
Preference will be given to events that address one or more of the following Food for All themes:
- The University as food systems innovator
- Teaching and learning about food
- The contribution of food to health promotion and disease prevention
- Food access/food justice
- The documentation of food cultures and history
To apply, please complete the microgrant application form online and specify the FFA LECTURE SERIES, Spring 2017, in your application title. For additional questions about this funding opportunity, please email the Food for All program.
Food for All: Local and Global Perspectives challenges the entire UNC campus community to explore wide-ranging topics from the regional study of food cultures and history in the American South to national and global issues of nutrition, community health and well-being, food security, world hunger, agricultural economics, resource management, sustainable development, climate change, and trade.
