This course will examine the political and movement dimensions of agroecology as they relate to sustainable food systems transformation. With an emphasis on theory and practice, students will evaluate agrarian social movements advocating for food sovereignty, exploring issues related to governance, power, and collective action across multiple scales. Drawing from international and regional perspectives on agroecology, applied dimensions of the course will focus on participatory-action research and critical pedagogies that advance food systems transformation.
