Paul Thompson, Ph.D.


Join us for a talk about food ethics by ethicist Paul Thompson, the W.K. Kellogg Chair in Agricultural Food, and Community Ethics at Michigan State University. Prof. Thompson is the leading food ethicist working today and author, most recently, of From Field to Fork: Food Ethics for Everyone (Oxford, 2015).


In his talk, Thompson will discuss how justice for food workers and small farmers has joined the concern over industrial agriculture’s impact on food animals and the environment. The issues are part of an emerging worldwide social movement that has turned to local and organic foods as people address concerns over the next wave of genetic engineering and nanotechnologies in what we eat.

The event is free and open to the public. It takes place at 7pm on Thursday, October 13, in Oechsle 224
