The Fisher Center for the Study of Women and Men will continue its discussion on gender, food and politics on Wednesday, March 14, with the screening of a film made by the Fisher Center’s 2011 Woodworth Fellow Lucia Berliner ’12. Berliner will show her film at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanford Room, followed by a thoughtful discussion about her work and the food system.
Berliner’s film delves into the organization Healthy Food for All, which seeks to stabilize organic food security for low-income families. Through interviews with those who benefit from the organization, the film reflects on the ever-present need for change in our food system and the answers Healthy Food has given to its many problems.
A media and society and psychology double major, Berliner has helped to plan numerous events and programs on campus meant to improve social awareness including a Japan relief fundraiser ArtFest, and the EcoFusion fundraiser, which nurtures environmental stewardship in middle school children.
The Stephen W. Woodworth ’54 Fisher Center Student Summer Fellowship offers students in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine and Performing Arts an opportunity to pursue their own academic projects over the summer. Projects must reflect The Fisher Center’s mission of social justice around issues of gender, race and class. Summer fellowships are intended to support students so they may devote themselves fully to exploring their own ideas and interests.
