About the Author:

Irena Knezevic is an assistant professor at Carleton’s School of Journalism and Communication. She studies communication, culture and health. She is especially interested in food systems, food labelling, and the discourse of food and health regulations. Her edited volume builds on existing research about alternative food initiatives and food movements to explore how a systems approach can bring about health and well-being through enhanced collaboration. Chapters describe myriad ways community-driven actors work to foster food systems that are socially just, embed food in local economies, regenerate the environment and actively engage citizens.

Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of Carleton University’s Faculty of Public Affairs.
