A Consumer Economist’s Foray into the World of Genetic Engineering of Food

Tue. Apr 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

A foray is defined as an attempt to become involved in a new activity or sphere or an incursion into enemy territory. For a consumer economist who studies genetically engineered (GE) food policy, both definitions fit. This talk with Jane Kolodinsky, chair, department of community development and applied economics, and director, Center for Rural Studies, University of Vermont, includes the history of the introduction of GE food into the food supply, a discussion of the regulatory process, and the current state of the regulation of GE food, including labeling. Sponsored by the Environmental Studies Program.
