The ways people produce their material needs, such as food, influences and determines how they structure their social arrangements and individual roles within a society, according to Karl Marx. Dr. Godfrey’s talk will investigate this theory by exploring the social history of food production and examine the reasons food production systems can be destructive to the planet as well as human health and welfare. Dr. Godfrey is working on a book, The Sun, the Moon and the Truth: Sociological Inquiry in an Age of Ecological Crisis, about the educational, social, political, and spiritual aspects of sustainability.
Presented by the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Department of Sociology, part of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at UConn.
