I wanted to share my dissertation from grad school that I wrote back in 2010. I consider this my magnum opus. Studying, researching, and interviewing this 10,000 word paper took me almost 6 months and was what ultimately solidified my passion for food. It’s a long read, but if you are interested in the future of feeding urban populations and/or the future of farming, I think you will enjoy it. I am happy for you to use any of the content of my dissertation, but I kindly ask that you cite me or cite the person that I am quoting in the piece. If ever ever have any questions about this or want to nerd out on food tech/food futures, please let me know in the comments or on the contact form. Happy reading!
