The Cultural Studies program's next AlterKnowledge Discussion Series event takes place next on November 7.

The discussion at this event will focus on urban food production, the culture and economy of food, and the future of farmers' markets. A screening of the short film Screening of A Growing Vision, which was produced by UBC cultural studies student Ethan Foster, will also be featured.

The panel at this event includes Ethan Foster, Curtis Stone owner and operator of Green City Acres and Matt Klasen, local food activist.

The AlterKnowledge discussion series brings together faculty and/or students affiliated with the Cultural Studies Program at UBC’s Okanagan campus and members of the Kelowna community to foster discussions about topics related to Culture, Power, and Identity.

To find out more about this discussion, contact David Jefferess, associate professor of cultural studies and English.
