“Policing Microbes and People: Raw Milk Politics in Post-Socialist Europe”

Please join us this Friday, September 23rd at 1:00 PM for Feast and Famine colloquium, Room 1080, 10th Floor, 35 West 4th Street, NYU

Diana Mincyte joined the Center for European and Mediterranean Studies at NYU as Assistant Professor/Faculty Fellow this Fall. Mincyte’s research lies at the intersection of food studies, economic sociology, and environmental studies. Her book focuses on diverse raw milk economies in post-socialist Lithuania to examine how European agro-food politics and sustainable development map on local practices and notions of risks, safety, and subsistence.

Please note that participants are asked to read papers in advance. To receive a copy of this week’s paper, please email Diana at diana.mincyte@nyu.edu.
