Upcoming Food Ethics Series Lectures

This lecture series, conducted during the 2011-2012 academic year, explored some of the most compelling issues in food ethics today—from the agrarian tradition to industrial farming, from the ethics of nutrigenomics to food safety and food security, from fish in pain to the fish on your plate.  This course of eight distinct but interrelated lectures was—like any good meal—designed to leave the audience both satisfied and wanting more.

The lectures in this series are available for online viewing through MediaSite*, YouTube, and iTunes U.

*Note: You must have Windows Media Player and Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher, or Microsoft Silverlight to view presentations on MediaSite.
