Announcing the Food Law Profs reading group!

We're starting a food law professors reading group!  The idea is to focus on books outside the legal arena which may nevertheless inform our views of the food system and to provide an arena for sharing our individual approaches to legal scholarship in the food systems area. 

Our first book will be Weighing In by Julie Guthman. Several of us will be lead discussants, who will present their own thoughts and questions as individual blog posts.

The rest of us (and any of you readers!) will then discuss the books within the comment sections.  We anticipate starting our discussion on January 10, 2014 and to continue for about a week and a half afterwards.

Happy reading!

Special thanks to Professor Steph Tai for getting this initiative organized.  Steph is an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin Law School, and this year is serving as the 2013-14 Supreme Court Fellow assigned to the Federal Judicial Center.
