The Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences is an annual gathering of scholars, students, policymakers and practitioners to exchange ideas and nurture groundbreaking research. This year’s Congress is being held at Concordia University in Montreal, with “connected understanding” as its overriding theme.

Leigh Brownhill is a writer, editor and researcher at York University whose work focuses on social movements, feminism and the political economies of food and energy. On May 31st, Brownhill gave a lecture assessing food sovereignty movements in Kenya and Canada according to their ability not only to alleviate poverty and hunger, but also to encourge a carbon-neutral existence through environmentally-sound farming practices.

This lecture was recorded by Tariq Jeeroburkhan.
