About the Event

Event Friday, April 20, 2018 - 1:00pm - 7:00pm

Location

The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University
160 Packard Ave
ASEAN Auditorium
Somerville, MA 02155
The Fletcher Food Symposium seeks to provide a forum to deepen the Fletcher approach to food studies, contextualized through a conversation on culinary diplomacy and tailored to Fletcher disciplines and specializations: food boundaries and identity shaped by security, human security, conflict resolution, and peacebuilding. This year’s symposium aims to enhance the discussion on food’s connection to conflict, peacebuilding, and cultural identity. Our panels will discuss why and how food can: i) be drivers in situations of conflict as well as be central to survival and community resilience within zones of conflict; ii) catalyze peace and build community across borders in the ever-globalizing world; and iii) promote cultural identity through refugee, migrant, and diaspora communities.
