Please encourage students to submit papers to this year’s AFHVS Student Research Paper Award competition. The Award details, dates and instructions can be downloaded here. The call is open for both graduate and undergraduate submissions. Please circulate widely!
AFHVS is dedicated to an open and free discussion of the values that shape and the structures that underlie current and alternative visions of food and agricultural systems. The Society is most interested in interdisciplinary research that critically examines the values, relationships, conflicts, and contradictions within contemporary agricultural and food systems and that addresses the impact of agricultural and food related institutions, policies, and practices on human populations, the environment, democratic governance, and social equity. Recent award winning student paper titles include:
- “Cultivating citizenship, equity, and social inclusion? Putting civic agriculture into practice through urban farming”;
- “Problems with the defetishization thesis: The case of a farmer’s market”;
- “The rise of local organic food systems in the US: An analysis of farmers’ markets”;
- “Building a real food system: The challenges and successes on the college campus.”
