DSJP to Host Annual Student-Faculty Conference

Debra Richardson, program director of the Utica Culinary Institute, will give the keynote speech at Hamilton's Diversity and Social Justice Project (DSJP) student-faculty conference that will take place on Sept. 23-24. She will give a talk titled, “Food Justice: Food as the Vehicle for Connecting Communities” on Thursday, Sept. 23, at 4:10 p.m., in the Red Pit, Kirner-Johnson Building. The conference is free and open to the public.

The DSJP student-faculty conference is designed to showcase the work of students who have spent the summer working as volunteers and/or scholars on issues of diversity and social justice and to make connections on campus and off.

In addition to the DSJP Summer Service Associates, recipients of Kirkland Summer Research Grants and some Emerson Grant recipients will present their research. Topics include Urban Agriculture in Utica, Surviving War: The Voices of Bosnian Women and Forgotten Women: The Struggle for Women’s Rights in Columbia.
