     *A SIP OF SCIENCE* bridges the gap between science and culture in a
setting that bridges the gap between brain and belly.  Food, beer, and
learning are on the menu in a happy hour forum that puts science in context
through storytelling.

No cover; food and drink available for purchase.
       PLEASE NOTE CHANGED DATE - Sip of Science will be on THURSDAY, Feb.
12th instead of Wednesday!

*February Sip of Science - From Mother Corn to GMO: Indigenous Peoples and
Plant Genetics*
*Clint Carroll, American Indian Studies, University of Minnesota*

*February 12th, 2015; 5:30 pm River Room, Aster Cafe, 125 SE Main St.
Minneapolis, Minnesota RSVP for Sip of Science

Humans have modified food crops to produce desirable traits since the birth
of agriculture, but today this modification mainly occurs at a plant’s
genetic level. The ever-growing prominence of genetically modified (GM)
foods, and the debates they have sparked, are an unavoidable part of our
lives today. But what are the implications of this increasing amount of
technology involved in food production—including the patenting and
commodification of genetically modified crops—for, specifically, American
Indian peoples? How do biopatenting standards privilege certain forms of
modification over others? How might a concept like “food sovereignty” work
to heal American Indian communities and decrease colonial dependency? Join
us as Dr. Clint Carroll addresses these questions and more through
indigenous perspectives on intellectual and cultural property, and the
recent indigenous traditional food movement.


Clint Carroll is an assistant professor of American Indian Studies at the
University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. He holds a Ph.D. in Environmental
Science, Policy and Management from the University of California-Berkeley
and a B.A. in Anthropology and American Indian Studies from the University
of Arizona. Clint is an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation and works
closely with his tribal community on issues of environmental policy and
cultural revitalization. His forthcoming book, Roots of Our Renewal:
Ethnobotany and Cherokee Environmental Governance (University of Minnesota
Press, Spring 2015), situates this work in the context of broader
discussions of tribal governance and political ecology. He teaches courses
on American Indian ecological perspectives and environmental issues.
