Just like the rest of the world, unfortunately, farming isn’t fair. Bill Winders, professor in the School of History and Sociology, is working to change that. Last week, he joined a roundtable discussion titled Disparity to Parity: Historical Perspectives.

“Parity” means equality in status or pay. Professor Winders and fellow panelists — a diverse group of farmers, research professors, historians, and more — discussed “historical perspectives of parity, how it differed for BIPOC and white farmers, and the reasons for/consequences of losing it.” 

The conversation was led by the National Family Farm Coalition and centered around how “learning from history will help us envision and enact farm and food justice now and for the future.” Visit the organization’s website to learn more about the year-long Disparity to Parity webinar series

Professor Winders is an expert in the intersection of social justice and food security and has written several books and articles on the topic. His current research examines the global meat industry and food crises in the world economy.
