Two Calls for Papers to the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development
Call for Papers on Labor in the Food System
(Sponsored by the Inter-Institutional Network for Food and Agriculture Sustainability - INFAS) - From migrant laborers and apprentices in our fields, to cutters in meatpacking plants and line workers in restaurants and food service, the world's food system is balanced on the backs of an often exploited group of people. The food system may be the largest employer in the world, but there is a dearth of research on the subject of labor in the food system. Click HERE (then scroll down) for details. Submission deadline: Sept. 22, 2015, with papers to be published in our winter 2015–16 issue or spring 2016.
Call for Commentaries on Race and Ethnicity in Food Systems
Despite the best intentions of many, the food movement manifests levels of whiteness and privilege that tend to exclude significant parts of society, and thus does not address the needs of the excluded. JAFSCD invites commentaries (preferably 1,500–2,000 words) from activists, scholars, and other food systems development professional and practitioners on issues and strategies related to race and ethnicity in food systems.
