Your Next Meal: Where Nature and Culture Intersect

Wrigley Lecture Series

Michael Pollan

  • Best-Selling Author and Sustainable Food Advocate

Named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME magazine, Michael Pollan writes about the places where nature and culture intersect: on our plates, in our farms and gardens, and in the built environment. He is the author of five New York Times bestsellers: The Omnivore's Dilemma; The Botany of Desire; In Defense of Food; Food Rules; and, mostly recently, Cooked.

Why do we need a more sustainable food system, and how can we build it? In this Wrigley talk, Pollan will discuss how industrial farming and eating have shifted the basis of our food system from sunlight to oil. He will explore the links between agriculture and climate change and suggest how we might "re-solarize" agriculture and the way we eat.
