October 2022: The State Monopoly on Hunger with Hannah Kass
This month on Partisan Gardens, we interviewed Hannah Kass, a food systems researcher and graduate student at University of Wisconsin – Madison. Kass recently published an article in the Journal of Peasant Studies that aimed to extend radical critiques of contemporary food systems and efforts to reform them. The article, “Food anarchy and the State monopoly on hunger,” has generated excitement and debate across academic and grassroots food advocates and researchers. As a contribution to this discussion, we asked Hannah to share some of the background of the article and to dig in on some of its most charged contributions.
