Fostering Food Access and Food Justice in Rural Contexts< < Back to
Defining Moments Podcast is hosting multiple episodes about how food communicates and how we communicate about food. On this episode, host Dr. Lynn Harter talks with Dr. Kristen Okamoto and Sonia Ivancic about the unique challenges and possibilities of addressing hunger in rural contexts characterized by high rates of poverty. They discuss their research with justice-oriented organizations that seek to go beyond providing access to food. They offer lessons learned about disrupting narratives of desperation and dependency and fostering narrative resilience. Dr. Okamoto is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at Clemson University. Dr. Sonia Ivancic is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication at University of South Florida.
