GIB Lecture Series "The Global Agricultural Crisis"
Food production beyond and within the planetary boundaries
Agriculture is a major source of global environmental change. Through globalized agricultural commodity chains, different places become connected and articulated in a variety of ways, a process that is currently being debated as telecoupling across the social and environmental sciences. In particular, conventional agriculture has the potential to further amplify the transgression of existing planetary boundaries. At the same time, the negative ecological effects of conventional agriculture cannot be separated from its (global) political economy. The talks in the Winter-term Lecture Series of the Department of Geography (GIB) at Bayreuth University will engage with these themes. Everyone interested is cordially invited!
