Field Experiences in Agroecology & Sustainable Food Systems

In this course students develop an analytical foundation for researching food systems through a combination of lectures and field visits. Lectures integrate natural and social science approaches to the biopolitics of soil ecology, pest management, pollination, nutrient cycling and water flows. Farm sites include vegetable, fruit, cut flower, livestock and aquaculture facilities with a range of sustainability orientations. The course exposes students to a wide array of methodological approaches in agroecological research and culminates in the development of an original research proposal.
