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!
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)
