Food for Thought: Lecture Series
Living Landscape of Loss and Love: Oliviculture in Sicily
February 27, 7pm. Lovejoy 215.
Food highlights a living paradox: it represents the key ingredient that binds us together, yet divides us when power dynamics and privilege are at play. By shedding light on these intricate realities, the Food for Thought Lecture Series seeks to problematize and critically assess the complex social, cultural, environmental, and political relationships that we have with food. Join the Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities on February 27 for a conversation with Amanda Hilton about oliviculture, the growing of olive trees, in Sicily.
Amanda Hilton is a Research Scientist at the Bureau of Applied Research in Anthropology (BARA) at the University of Arizona. She is an applied environmental anthropologist and political ecologist who works in Sicily, Italy and the US Southwest and Southeast.
