Sarah Rotz’s
academic work focuses on political ecologies of land and food systems, settler colonial patriarchy, and concepts of sovereignty and justice related to food, water and energy, and the ecosystems that support them. Sarah has written on topics ranging from the politics of farmland ownership and critical perspectives of agricultural technologies, to the ways that settler colonial logics and gendered narratives uphold extractive practices and relationships on the land. Her postdoctoral research explores the potential for accountable relationships between settler and Indigenous peoples through land-based, Indigenous-led food and energy sovereignty projects on Turtle Island.

Ian Mosby is an award winning author and historian of food, Indigenous health and the politics of settler colonialism. He has a PhD in History from York University and his current research explores the history of human biomedical experimentation on Indigenous peoples during the second half of the twentieth century. Ian’s first book, Food Will Win the War: The Politics, Culture and Science of Food on Canada’s Home Front was was awarded the 2015 Political History Book Prize by the Canadian Historical Association and, in 2016, was shortlisted for a Canada Prize in the Humanities by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.
