UC Berkeley professor to hold open talk at Avogadro’s Number on Monday

The Environment Justice Working Group at Colorado State University will be holding a public talk at Avogadro’s Number from 5 to 6:30 p.m., featuring Kathryn DeMaster, Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.

DeMaster, who is an assistant professor of agriculture, society and environment in the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management at UC Berkeley, will be discussing the social movements research she has conducted during the event.


“I will be discussing what the alternative/local food movement can learn from other historical movements that have used food as a vehicle for social change, including the Black Panther movement, the Chicanx movement and the Standing Rock Sioux movement,” DeMaster wrote in an email to the Collegian.

DeMaster, whose work focuses on agriculture transitions and social change, previously spoke with CSU students and faculty on Friday about agricultural issues in the United States. 

Students will get the opportunity to ask DeMaster questions during the open talk on Monday.

“Students can expect a talk/public lecture, followed by questions and conversation,” DeMaster wrote. “Students who are interested in alternative agriculture may find it interesting.”
