Bringing together original contributions by Canadian scholars from various disciplinary backgrounds, Critical Perspectives in Food Studies introduces students to the shifting interpretations, perspectives, challenges, governance issues, and future visions that shape the study of food and food issues in Canada and around the world. Offering the most up-to-date overview of the field, this second edition incorporates new chapters on a range of current food-related issues, including food security, farm animal welfare, genetically modified crops, sustainability, and alternative food systems.Urbanization in a Global Context is a contributed text that helps Canadian students understand the process of urbanization by examining cities outside Canada across the global North and South. Truly international in its approach, it emphasizes the interconnectedness of urban places and fosters analysis that identifies the similarities and differences between cities in different world regions. Each chapter focuses on different contemporary urban issues -ranging from urban policy, climate change, and gender to transportation and water governance - and introduces current urban scholarly debates, grounding them in international case studies. How these issues resonate with the Canadian urban context is discussed in text boxes, which employ descriptive accounts,drawing on examples from a selection of small-, mid-, and large-sized Canadian cities. Activities and questions at the end of each chapter prompt students to collaborate with peers to further critically reflect upon how these urban issues could relate to their lived experience in Canadian cities.
