The Corner Brook Museum and Archives Presents: Newfoundland Food Security and Food Sovereignty: Where have we been and what are we doing to improve? A lecture by Dr. Catherine Keske

Over the centuries, Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have been resilient and resourceful in their food provisioning strategies. However, food security and food sovereignty have presented long- standing challenges to the province. This lecture summarizes the similarities faced by previous generations and presents research and efforts currently underway to address the issues in the future.

Dr. Catherine Keske is an Associate Professor in Environmental Studies (ECON) at the Grenfell Campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland. She earned her Ph.D. in agricultural and resource economics at Colorado State University and has a master’s of science in mineral economics.

This event will take place on February 23rd, 2016 at 7:30pm. Admission for this lecture is free.
