Chocolate:  A Rich Dark History presented by William Munro

Dr. William Munro teaches courses in International Politics, African Politics, Conflict Areas in the Global South, Development Theory, and Social Movements at Illinois Wesleyan University. His research interests include the politics of state formation and development in the global south as well as popular organization in the international food economy. Munro uses candy to challenge you to think critically about what you eat.

“It takes enormous resources, human and otherwise, to make chocolate,” he said. “We should look at everything we eat in the same way, with the understanding that what we eat and how we eat is shaped by a wide network of social, cultural and historical relationships.”

Join the Museum, IWU and the Collaborative Solutions Institute for this FREE monthly event to “Lunch and Learn” together.
