The Food Disconnect
Sarah Trafican, Clinical Psychologist
Gemini Theater

Our relationships with food and our role within the modern food system are becoming increasingly complex. Clinical Psychologist Sarah Trafican has dedicated a great deal of thought and research to this idea and finds that the changing politics and technologies involved in food production and marketing have alienated us—as individuals and as a society—from the food we eat. Come hear about and discuss Sarah’s take on the causes and implications of what she deems the food disconnect.
