Comparative Studies' faculty member, Robert Livingston, is leading a new initiative at Ohio State called Food Futures: Design + Comparative Studies Teaching Cluster.
This initiative is in relation to OSU's goal of obtaining 40% of its on campus food from local and sustainable sources by 2025.
"This ambitious commitment to future sustainability serves as the backdrop for the Food Futures: Design + Comparative Studies Teaching Cluster, a teaching collaboration between comparative studies senior lecturer Rick Livingston, associate professor of design Peter Chan and associate professor of English Ben McCorkle. The collaboration is housed within the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme’s Livable Futures project, which encourages innovation and collaboration across disciplines to address societal and planetary issues". -from the original ASC news post
