Exploring the Connections Between Food and Democracy

December 12, 2023

Food and Democracy

At a gathering in Chicago last August, the leader of the new Syracuse University Institute for Democracy, Journalism and Citizenship (IDJC) led a conversation about the connections between food and democracy.

Margaret Talev, Kramer Director of the IDJC, was joined by Maxwell Dean David M. Van Slyke; Monica Eng, a journalist with Axios Chicago; and Rohini Dey, a restaurateur, writer and activist. Before an audience of students, alumni and friends, they tackled issues such as food diplomacy, food insecurity and supply chains.

The event was hosted by Maxwell Advisory Board member and alumnus Stephen Brodsky ’93 B.A. (PPhil) and his wife, Elizabeth.
