Abstract Deadline Extended to May 25, 2008

In 1961, John F. Kennedy said of his “Food for Peace” program that “Food is
strength, and food is peace, and food is freedom…” This panel invites
papers that address those connections. Adequate access to resources is
fundamental to assuring peace. Discussions of literature revealing problems
of sustenanceâ€"-i.e. nutritious food and clean water--in a global economy are
especially welcome, as are multiple and interdisciplinary perspectives.
