Adele Hite presented at the Fifth International Conference on Food Studies

On September 18, CRDM student Adele Hite attended the Fifth International Conference on Food Studies at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Virginia.  She gave a paper entitled, “Beyond ‘Good Nutrition’: The Ethical Implications of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans,” at the panel, Practice and Policies that Challenge Food and Nutrition.
The conference  theme was “A Cross Roads in Food Studies:  Alternative vs. Traditional Food Systems and Movements,” with topics that addressed agricultural, environmental, nutritional, social, economic, and cultural perspectives on food.  The conference welcomed a variety of scholars–from public administration to education to food science to cultural studies–for a truly interdisciplinary experience centered around the role that food plays in our lives.
