"Dining with the Devil"
A heads-up to anyone in the environs of middle Tennessee with an interest in food ethics. A symposium on food, health, and society is in full sway right now, through tomorrow, in my building (James Union Building) on the Middle Tennessee State University campus. A screening of "Food, Inc." (featuring Michael Pollan) will begin at 4 pm in the Tennessee Room, and Mark Bittman (author of Food Matters and long-time New York Times staff writer) will deliver the keynote address at 6 pm.
Lots of interesting talks will be going on all day tomorrow, too, including Stanford scholar Dr. Paula England at 11:30, speaking of "Gender Equality: What's changing? What's not?"
