Yukon Field School on Food Security in Northern Canada - applications due January 11, 2019
The Guelph Institute of Development Studies will be offering a development-focused summer field school in the Yukon Territories in Summer 2019.
The Yukon Field School on Food Security in Northern Canada will enable students to apply perspectives on international development to food security issues in Canada’s North. In this field-based and experiential course, students will explore theoretical and conceptual knowledge during in-class modules in Guelph. They will then gain food security knowledge traveling in and around Whitehorse, Yukon for two weeks. They will interact with First Nations and settler communities in the Yukon to learn more about foodways in the territory. Through an in-depth exploration of Yukon’s food system, the course will push students to consider the challenges and opportunities associated with applying concepts and theories that originate in international development studies to the Canadian context.
