International Studies Summer Institute (ISSI) 2020: Hunger Around the World: Teaching Food Security at Home and Abroad


June 29-30, 2020

Stocking Hall, Room 148

Cornell University

Ithaca, New York


During this cross-curriculum workshop, educators will engage in activities that focus on integrating world area knowledge through the context of global hunger, food instability, and food justice movements. Teachers will learn how to explore students’ knowledge about food security in their own communities and relate this knowledge to learn about communities around the world. Our goal is to encourage students to have a greater understanding of the different regions and cultures of the world and to think critically about social, political, and environmental issues using food security as a jumping off point. Because of the nature of this theme, the 2020 ISSI will be suitable for elementary, middle, and high school teachers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds.
