How do grassroots ecological practices connect with broader visions and strategies for collective liberation?
Participatory ecology as research. At the same time, a growing number of food, environment, and agricultural researchers seek to bring their work into alignment with these movements–shifting resources of methodology, knowledge, and institutional capital into the service of transformation.
How can research, within and without institutions, support the vision and strategy of these movements?
This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and movement activists, each of whom defy easy categorization into any one of these categories. We will use this unique forum as an opportunity to hash out the ways in which our visions for collective liberation can be realized in the strategies and practices of our movements and movement-embedded research.
