Guest Speaker: Dr. Sarah Lyon, PhD., University of Kentucky
Presented by the Department of Anthropology
This presentation explores the Fair Trade Towns movement in which fair trade advocates and retailers are collaborating to 'grow the fair trade market' one community at a time by bringing together schools, places of worship, retailers and community organizations. These campaigns attempt to root fair trade consumption in local places--a critical turn in the fair trade movement which opens up a politics of possibility for the promotion of alternative economic practices.
