Abstract

[In this chapter, I draw on theories of intersectionality to develop a nascent “interspecies food justice” approach to teaching about food systems. This approach builds on critical scholarship in education that centers the lives of animals, marginalized humans, or both, along with the environment. After this initial theoretical framing, I provide an overview of the Critical Food Studies course I teach and research, highlighting how intersectional theories guide my own pedagogy, as well as my positionality as an educator and scholar. In this section, I provide specific examples of pedagogical tools I employ. Next, I explore how interdisciplinary intersectional pedagogies might afford students the opportunity to understand injustices as intricately linked through power structures that exploit animals and some humans alike. To do this, I briefly analyze and share several pieces of empirical data from my research on the course. I conclude by drawing out the implications and tensions of this research.]
