Food for Justice at the ISA
Renata Motta and Marco Teixeira present at the IV ISA Forum of Sociology: Challenges of the 21st Century: Democracy, Environment, Inequalities, Intersectionality
News from Feb 18, 2021
During six days, hundreds of panels will explore the world in the pandemic and the world that may come out of it at the IV ISA Forum of Sociology - and Food for Justice is part of it! The pandemic has stressed how deeply interdependent we have become and accentuated the need of a more global sociology. Epistemologies of the South and intersectional perspectives on democracy, ecology and social justice are more than alternative options for sociology in the 21st century. There are at its core and have deeply transformed it. To see the participation and contributions of Food for Justice during the ISA, have a look at the following schedule (Brazilian time):
