Acclaimed food system writer Michael Pollan has helped many of us better understand food, and our relationship to it, through his books The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food, and Cooked. What happens when we apply a scholarly lens to his writing? In this panel discussion, UVM faculty will dig into the issues that arise when we look at Pollan's work from the perspective of different academic disciplines, and offer insights on the opportunities they provide for the sustainable food movement.
