Grist Blogging!

Many of you have already heard about this, but I wanted to write here about a new opportunity I've been granted: For the next semester, I'll be blogging for a Food Studies series over at Grist!

If you're not familiar with Grist, it's probably the biggest and coolest environmental e-magazine around. Time magazine referred to it as, "The Colbert Report of climate change, The Daily Show of deforestation, the Oprah of oil dependency--except with real reporting and analytical journalism."

The Food Studies series follows 11 bloggers who are studying food in some capacity at universities around the world, and gives readers a peek into their lives and studies. It should be pretty cool (if I do say so myself).

Here's the series introduction that our editor, Nicola Twilley, wrote: Food Studies, The Edible Curriculum

My first post doesn't go live until next Wednesday 9/28, but I figured I'd give you my writing schedule here, so you can all be sure to follow along, and let me know what you think! (though I'll likely be cross-posting here as well)

And I'd love any suggestions for posts over there, if there's something in particular you all want to read about, in a different forum.

Yay!
